Snot a Problem
I think I have mentioned in the past how wonderful and thoughtful Donna Freedman is. She really does go out of her way to save the world even their sinus cavities. I told her the last time she was here, how I still have terrible headaches and get very dizzy when I turn my head. Not only can she help you stay out of debt, she is a doctor too. She may even be willing to play doctor with you, all you have to do is ask. She told me how a company sent her a SinuSense turbo neti pot and would I like it.Yes, thank you!
I was so excited to try this. This little sucker could be the answer to all of my problems. I asked DJ to help me cut the box open and when he saw what it was volunteered himself as my assistant. Maybe not an assistant but a heckler. I did not let him dampen my excitement.
Our conversation went something like this......
DJ-Let me get this straight, you are heating salt water and pouring it into a squirt gun that is battery operated?
Me-Something like that, DJ.
DJ-I'm so taping this for You Tube(He flops down on the toilet to get a better look at me)
Me-Piss off, get out!
DJ-I wouldn't miss this for the world.
Me-(I shove the thing up my nose and just give him a dirty look)
DJ-(laughingly) I have a question.
Me-(with the thing in my nose) WHAT?
DJ-Can't you drown on a few tablespoons of water?
Me-(still with said Neti pot in my nostril) I think so, I don't know. Why?
DJ-That thing has 8 ounces of microwaved salt water in it, what's to stop you from drowning?
Here is where I said nothing because honestly, I didn't have an answer. In fact, I was getting a bit scared and DJ wasn't helping at all. He was making it worse. But I decided that I wanted my health and was willing to try anything.
I flipped the switch. A few things happened at once, my eyeballs bulged a bit, the noise from the pump reverberated through my head and my head filled with water and desperately looked for an escape. All that said, it was quite refreshing in a VERY odd sort of way. It didn't hurt at all and really wasn't that bad. It wasn't fun but it wasn't terrible. The amazing thing is my head feels so much better today, honestly. I'm going to keep this up just not with DJ around. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with sinus problems. Today, is the first day that my ears aren't popping either.
DJ also, enjoyed the SinuSense turbo neti pot just for other reasons. He laughed until he had to rock back and forth. I was just glad that the rushing water in my head drowned him out. When it was all said and done he said, "God bless you, I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard. You made the throw up face the entire time. That was great."
Ahhhh, teenagers you have to love them. The thing he doesn't realize is the next time he gets a head cold I'm using it on him.
