My ear is paining me today because of my stupid sinuses being congested. I hate my
sinuses! They are the bane of my existence many days. I wish I could vacuum them out and not have anything left to irritate me. Yes, I have a Neti Pot but it feels really weird and I don’t always manage to tolerate all the saline going through my sinus cavities for it to work fully. Also, I don’t use it regularly like I should because I find it to be too much effort getting the distilled water the proper temperature and my ‘salt’ (not table!) concentration right. I’ve got individual packets of the salt to use for the nasal wash but it says use two packets, which I do, but then because I’m not very good at doing it the saline ends up in my mouth more than anywhere else. It’s just a process I find awkward. I’ve considered buying a nasal spray but they don’t clean your sinuses out just the nostrils.
All right, I’m done my complaining for the day. Just had to get that off my chest!
