Manic Monday - Explosive

MM Headquarters ~ Previous MMs
This could have been an EXPLOSIVE situation!


I have been battling a sinus infection for over a week now. I am on my last day of a 7 day antibiotic and unfortunately I don't feel as though I am any better. I'm still having explosive headaches due to the pressure. I took the advice of some blogging friends and tried the Neti Pot. At this point, I was willing to try anything because I have not been able to get any relief. I followed the recommended dosage instructions and flushed out my nasal passages. I must say that it was a bit odd at first, but hopefully after a few flushes it will help get rid of this infection that obviously the antibiotic isn't. I will keep you posted on the results. Happy Manic Monday to you all!

Oh Tisha, I'm sorry you are still feeling terrible. Call you doctor in the morning and get something else. You poor thing.

I see we both thought of Wile E. Coyote. Great minds and all. Big hug and try to have a great MM. :)

I really have to wonder what went through the guy on the forklift's mind right after that.

Later Y'all.

Yes, that could have been really, really bad!!

Janna said...

I've never heard of nasal irrigation! How strange! It makes me feel like I would need gills or something, to keep from drowning.
Hope it helps you, though. Get well soon.
I know how bad explosive headaches can be. They are truly nasty.

I'm sorry about your sinus infection. I used to get them all the time. What I hated most about them was that once I managed to knock them out with (at least two courses of) antibiotics, I would get a secondary infection and end up sick all over again. Mine were usually urinary tract secondary infections, which of course, meant another antibiotic!

I hope your's doesn't do that. Be well.

I understand about those explosive headaches, too!

Matt-Man said...

I hope you feel better soon Tish. Cheers!!

Mariposa said...

The second photo scared me!

Ash Joie-Lee said...

That explosive picture is scary!
I sure hope you find relief for your sinus infection! Those are not fun! I have yet to use a Netti Pot but know folks who swear by it!

Hot showers and lots of saline rinses! Happy Monday! Its Explosive!

Sorry to hear you have been ill, and I hope any explosive bodily productions are soon finished.

Ooooh sh*t - that looks explosive!

Good luck with your Neti Pot, Tisha - I´ve never heard of it before... but I´ll click on the link in 3... 2... 1...

Mississippi Songbird said...

Oh, I hope that remedy helps. I may try that myself. I just can't seem to shake the coughing and congestion.. Get well soon...

Mo said...

Oh good, I'm glad you found a Neti Pot... they say that regular use while symptoms persist is the key.
Let us know!

Claire said...

Feel better soon and keep me updated on the neti pot.
Why don't you do a video of you using it?

:)

Travis said...

Happy MM!

I hope the flush works and you are feeling better soon!

Sandra Ferguson said...

Ooh, it's nasty to be sick and pregnant. There's so much you can't take to actually get well. Hope the feel-good fairies will show up soon and you'll kick this thing.
