            • I used it. It was an odd experience, that's for sure. At first, nothing happened, except the water trying to exit my nose and drain into my mouth. Thinking this was wrong, I put the pot down, used a tissue to blow my nose and tried again. Started getting a drip out of the other nostril, let it drip for a bit, and blew my nose again. FINALLY got a flow. Sooooo gross. Green stuff was coming out of my nose. Yuck. Did it for the other side, steady flow the whole time, no gunk. Used a 3rd pot on the first nostril, and the water ran out clear, so I figured I could probably stop despite the small amount of pressure I felt when I bent over. I was able to breathe all night long.

              Today, crushing pressure. Evidently the effects of the netipot are temporary... thinking I'll have to do it again tonight. It's not pleasant enough that I'm looking forward to it, I can say that much. but if I can get the stuff flushed out, maybe it'll help in the long run too. I really wish this sinus shit would go away.

              I'm up a pound and lethargic as hell today. My body hurts and I just want to sleep. Why, might you ask? Because yesterday I LHT for the first time in months. I did 40 assisted pullups (20 lifting 37% of my weight, 20 lifting 47% of my weight), did 100 body weight bench squats and 50 pushups from my knees. Needless to say, I'm a bit tenderized today.

              Last night for dinner, I roasted a chicken in our oven. SHIT! I just realized I left my bone broth on! Dang it! I put ACV in it this morning to leech the bones and meant to pull the bones before I left for work. Shit. With that hurt anything?? I won't get home til about 9 tonight so I want to make sure it's not going to get ruined having the bones in there that long now that there's ACV in it. If it'll ruin it, I'll have to call DH and ask him if he'll pull the bones out and set the crock in the fridge to cool. He'll be thrilled with that, especially since I didn't get out of bed on time, was running late, etc. He'll say "If you'd get out of bed on time, this wouldn't have been an issue, blah blah blah, yackity yackity, same shit different day".

              Anyhow, I made a roasted chicken last night. OMG it was so yummy. I ended up putting it back in the oven under the broiler to crisp the skin a bit. DH doesn't like moist chicken skin and won't eat it. If I want him to get the benefits of it, he's gonna have to eat it, so under the broiler it went. I also had roasted cauliflower and steamed broccoli. Later I had some watermelon. I love watermelon. Lots and lots and lots of water in that stuff.

              Today's eats:

              B:
              2 eggs scrambled
              4 sausage links
              fruit medley (yum)

              L:
              leftovers from dinner last night

              D:
              Turkey breast lunch meat
              watermelon
              almonds
              (I know... not the best meal ever, but I have class tonight).

              Movement - I'll take a walk but I'm not doing anything else. Body is too sore and tired.

              I hope all are having a good day.

              • I never got a Neti Pot to work for me. I felt relief for about one minute after I used it, then was congested again. One thing I read that I would suggest to you is to make sure you DON'T blow very hard. Just a slightly stronger exhale through your nose than you normally would. If you blow too hard, you mess with your sinus pressure even more, and it can block you up again. I'm considering trying it again, but frankly, it's a hassle to heat the water just to rinse my damn nose out. I still wonder if I did it right, if it would actually help with my post nasal drip and allergies. Probably not, with my luck.

                • I believe that with neti pots, you have to use them consistently for a week or so, before the effects last longer. Something about the sudden change to your sinus causing them to go into hyper-drive. After they get used to a daily flush, they don't over-react so much. (This from a friend who uses one. Daily during allergy season, less frequently other times of the year.)

                  • Good to know, maybe I will try them out again when I adjust my sleep schedule. I wonder if it would be more beneficial to use them in the morning or evening, depending on allergies.

                    • I would definitely say my sinuses are in hyperdrive today. They are PISSED off at me for the flush. Throbbing worse today than yesterday and I'm starting to have some gunk stuff things up. I can't even LOOK down, much less bend down, without things throbbing to beat hell.

                      • Oh, you sound so miserable! I'm so sorry! Have you tried putting hot wash cloths on your face to ease the pain and pressure? I just can't believe you are still suffering so much after so many antibiotics and all.........

                        Does this happen every year? I'm wondering if you could possibly have some nasal polyps that are blocking the passages and keeping all that gunk in there? Maybe its time to go see an Ear Nose and Throat Specialist. If using the NetiPot for a week doesn't clear things up - I'd strongly suggest seeing another doctor. You might need some more testing to find out whats going on in there!

                        • No I have never had problems with sinus infections before. I'd get one here and there with the seasons, but never one that has lasted this long and been this brutal.

                          So, you wanna hear something super cool?? I'm taking an online class for social media marketing as an elective for grad school. I thought it would be an easy A and it has been anything but... I've actually had to work my butt off in this class.

                          Anyhow, I had done up the powerpoint presentation (which you guys saw if you clicked on my Google Docs link and was scheduled to go. I couldn't get the class platform to load (the program we use to communicate via the web) so I made arrangements with my professor to do it at 2 today from work. 2 came and went and I wasn't able to log on here either. It would load the app but would not connect. I called him to let him know what was going on, fully expecting to give the presentation over the phone instead with him flipping through the charts on his end, etc. Apparently he didn't want to do that b/c he said that b/c I've been one of his best students, I've always been on time with my assignments, always communicated well with him and have really grasped the material, he was going to excuse me from giving the vocal presentation. How freaking awesome is that?!?!?!
