I'm Back on the Sauce

Yes, indeed. I was able to break my addiction a couple of months ago, after I reached a low point of being unable to even go to dinner for a couple hours without having it on me.

But now I'm back. I broke down last night and used it. And spent a few blissful hours sleeping peacefully (no doubt aided by my large dose of nyquil).

Let's hope my addiction is short lived. Or Mike may find it and hide it again like last time.

Hah! No, it's nasal spray. I love the stuff. LOVE it.

ha. i knew you were a true addict when you brought the stuff out to dinner with you.

on a more serious note, have you thought about seeing an ENT? maybe you have polyps in your sinuses or something.

Amy,I think I may have a deviated septum. (Damn! Should have had them fix that when I got the nose job 10 years ago. too late now.) And I think I just get hit harder by colds than normal people. But maybe I should ask a doctor about it sometime.

Have you had allergy testing done? Maybe an allergy is contributing to the sinus problems. And are you addicted to nasal spray or to breathing? I have sinus problems and the little red sudafeds are my best friend...breathing is such a good thing.

Have you ever considered the idea that more Tabasco Chipotle might solve your problems?

On your food, not up your nose, silly.

Tanya, I think I'm just addicted to breathing through my nose. My problems don't stem so much from allergies but from colds. I start using the spray then and have a hard time getting off it, even when the cold is done. I also love those little red pills.

I'm going to have to try that hot sauce!

I've got chronic sinusitis. I've been doing the nasal irrigation thing and its helped alot. Pretty gross, but it really helps the sinus headaches...and breathing through my nose.

chili peppers? Best things ever too. I CRAVE hot and spicy. Ginger beer (look in the latin section of your local supermarket) by goya is awesome too.

my tonsil remover is not for the faint of heart. it's pretty much like mainlining habanero peppers. but i do find it helps keep the sinuses clear (i'm also a sufferer, but i don't pack around the spray, i have better methods). i might also recommend a little wasabi, that stuff'll punch you right in the nose. very satisfying.
