Definitely not Dr. Pepper
We'll start of this blog with too much information. I have a sinus infection. I know...sorry!
You will notice on air, it sounds like I am super winded and congested. I am! I have an immense amount of sinus pressure. It makes me just want to lay down all day. Medicine is helping with the congestion, but I still feel pretty lousy.
All right enough complaining from me!
The funny thing is that I have tried everything to feel better! Last night I looked all over the internet for home remedies. The one that I kept coming across over and over was a concoction of cayenne pepper and apple cider vinegar. I had both in my apartment, so, I figured, what the heck! I added three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water then I added a tablespoon of cayenne pepper and mixed. It looked and smelled pretty nasty. But, hey, at least I could smell it!!!
Down the hatch it went (slowly) and it did help a little. I think more than anything, my mouth was on fire, and so then I was thinking about that and not the fact that the swelling behind my cheeks. And, it made me laugh that I actually did it!
Let me know if you have any other suggestions for relief!
I have tried medicine, a humidifier, warm compresses (which do help), sleep, spicy foods and lots of water. I think I just need to rest and let my body fight it rather than trying to find a quick fix...but I am open to suggestions!
Anyone in the mood for sushi tonight? I have a feeling a spoonful of wasabi would clear me right up!
