A Neti Pot

So, I have been pretty sick the last 10+ days with some kind of viral head cold. Sunday night my face hurt. MY FACE HURTED!

After convincing myself it wasn't face cancer, I decided maybe my sinuses were over-plugged and/or infected. Which prompted me to try the scary Neti Pot. (exact one)

and this is how you use it:

I thought I'd be panicky; but, it's not really that bad. The sensation is somewhat like you jumped in a pool without plugging your nose and that's about it...not much came out like I'd hope.

This morning I thought I'd put some of my food grade 35% hydrogen peroxide in my pot. Brilliant!

I'm pretty sure I burned my sinuses and my brain but my nose DOES feel clearer.

I hope so cuz we got a FUCK BUSH party to go to SAturday. who'd want to miss that???

a WHAT kind of party? Call me a dumb Okie but I've never heard of that kind of party...do tell;-)

Just keep using the NetiPot a whole lot because it will help, I love mine. Try Louisanna Hot Sauce in it...works great.

Everytime i get sick i think it's terminal...BTW, just kidding on the hot sauce;-)

Feel Better!
