Can I just say that I'm tired of having the World's Most Hyperactive Immune System? I'm sick of my chronic sinus illnesses.
I had opera tickets last night, but stayed home with a cold and blinding sinus-headache. What a depressing waste of money.
While I'm grumping away, I need to express my bafflement at the whole neti pot phenomenon. I have sort of managed to get the thing to work. It still feels like water-boarding. I don't see what's so amazing about it. Unlike what many people report, I'm not liberating tons of disgusting material. If anything, my sinuses are too dry. I suspect that there's not a lot to dislodge. According to my ear-nose-and-throat doctor, I'm supposed to use this peculiar torture device three times a day.
Other than the freaky gross-out factor of getting water to squirt into one nostril and out the other, I really don't see what the objective is. Why would any adult person want to do this?
