Oh, the pain!!!

Sinus pressure. Facial pain. Sore gums.

Ever have a day where you suffer from that kind of pain from a sinus infection ... the kind where your teeth even hurt? Oh ... You know what I mean ... one of those days where the thought of relief is brought on by the mere thought of doing this to yourself?



Yeah, well ... that's where I'm at right now. Driving nails through my face, nasal passages, sinus cavities and gums sounds like a pleasant thought.

Yeah... sooooo there.

Oh you poor baby! It's that time of year.

This morning my boss asked what to take to ease his head cold and I all of the sudden asked, "Is your snot green?" He gave me a how-did-you-know? look and I said, "Doctor. Antibiotic. Now please do not come out of your office."

Okay I kept that last part to myself, but I thought it!

The pounding is the worst!

Take care of yourself and remember to breathe!

Me too! As long as I don't have to bend over, sending all the pain to the top of my head, I'm OK. Sudafed Sinus, non-drowsy formula!

ouch....They are the worst! I used to use Alka Seltzer Sinus - was the only thing I could get to work.
Hope you feel better soon! Praying for you!

I have battled with sinus infections for a few years now (not continuous...)LOL

Thank God for Sudafed.

Praying you feel well SOON.

YIKES! Sadly, we all know exactly of what you speak!

Hope you are feeling better soon!

Can you treat yourself to a day in bed.....grab the sudafed, ice packs for your face and warm packs for the back of your neck. These things are worthy of doing whatever you can! A trip to the Dr might be in order....and don't forget to "fudge" a little onthe length of your sinus infection. For heaven's sake.....don't tell him/her it is only a day or two old....tell him/her it's been this way for 13 days! Antibiotics do the trick everytime....but you have to nearly die before you get them.

Is that lieing? Preserving your own health and well-being? Say it aint so!

My secret weapon, from the sinus capital of the USA:

1)prescription strength Guiafenesin
2)sinus passage surgery, if #1 repeatedly fails.

And my dear sweet friend, I wanted to make sure you heard about the party I was throwing. Cause I simply can't have a party without my favorite bloggers there now can I?!?!

No worries - the party isn't until March so you will be all healthy by then :)

Hop on over to my place to find out all about it.

BTW - I miss you. I barely get to go visit my blogroll lately. I am so crazy busy. But I do miss you!!!
