Nothing is more generous than a sinus infection, especially this one. My nasal cavity has been under siege by some sort of pathogen for the better part of a month now. While other ancillary symptoms have abated the glow-in-the-dark by product in my sinus cavities has not.
Emily had this. Shawn had this. Both of them are feeling better and snot free. Me? Heck, I seem to be a Mucinex green germ's dream. Part of it may be the fact that I dislike taking medication. While I am no homeopathic nut I just don't like dumping pills into my system at the hint of discouraging symptoms. I like to tough things out. Really, I am not sure why. It doesn't make anyone less of a person for taking medication. Heck, I dispense it to people at work on a regular basis. For some reason I just prefer not to take it. Maybe I have some super-hero vision of my immune system?
Clearly, with this infection that is not the case.
I've been to the doctors, actually, which requires even more discomfort to get me to go than to take medicine. They informed me that it was viral and I'd get over it, just like Emily. Well, my six month old with a baby-sized immune system is all better. Me? Not so much. I'd love to kick this thing once and for all, but am not sure what the heck to do really. The doctor refused to prescribe me antibiotics since he believes its a viral infection so I guess I am on my own and still waiting for this dang thing to 'run its course'.
The only thing running right now is my nose.
So, to improve upon this downer of a post here is a picture of Emily. She has the ability to make anything better.
