You know you’re busting your own tail too hard when you actually look forward to getting sick. This year, I’ve been running myself ragged but for the most part, have been fortunate enough not to catch an illness. Over the past several months though, I’ve been bombarded with itty bitty ailments, which is probably my body staging a coup.
At the moment, I’m battling the cold that ate Cleveland. The pressure in my sinuses is so massive, I imagine all my teeth falling out and the roof of my head bursting open like a Southwest airliner. One of my ear canals feels as if someone dropped a deflated balloon inside and is now slowly blowing it up. It all hurts so darn much I don’t even get to relax while sick in bed. My greatest fear is developing a sinus infection, which I’ve never had before but am just tickled pink to get the chance to experience. What better way to spend the first warm days of spring!
All this to say, my entire being is working way too hard to be able to put together a blog post this week. So I thought I’d pose a fun, yet immensely helpful, question. As my health began to deteriorate this week, one of my students, a gentleman from Guatemala, gave me his family’s cure-all; a brew made of things like eggs, ginger root, honey and loads of tequila. Though I’m not apt to hit the bottle, I’d love some tips on how to deal with sinus infections seeing as how I’ve never had one. Ideas?
Please help your friendly, neighborhood blogger get well. And see you next week!
