I am sick and tired of being sick! I need summer to be here!
Today will be my last day on antibiotics... the 4th script in 4 months and today, my throat is starting to hurt again, my ears feel very 'full' and I'm starting to get a horrible headache and I have felt tired and weak and sore all day.
I'm ready to quit my job and curl up under a ton of blankets and not come out until June 1st!
I hope everyone else is feeling better!

Holli,

This comes from a person who used to suffer constantly from sinus infections. I'd go from one script right after another to no avail. I hardly ever get them any more and this is why: I read up on what causes sinus infections, and I won't go in to details here. However, my grandmother used to tell me that her dad used to swear by salt water to cure a sinus infection. I used to chalk it up as an old wive's tale. Then my allergist recommended using saline nasal spray every day....and several times a day if the sinus pressure started. Saline nasal spray is simply salt water sold in a bottle for about $2. It's gross, but if you spray it in your nose, wait a few moments, then blow, it clears your sinuses of bacteria. If you already have an infection, it helps with the pressure. Once I started doing that, I have had I think one sinus infection, and I had that because I was OUT OF saline nasal spray and too lazy to go to the store and buy some. I am not making this up. Seriously. It's gross, but it works.

Feel better, okay?
