And yet again sinuses!

I have been trying to keep an analytical mind about my sinus issues instead of folding into a little tired depressed bundle. 

Over the last week I have realised that changes in weather like a warm sunny day after rainy days is a trigger just as are dreary days just after a patch of sunny days.  Why?  I don't know!

Also, even though I really want to hide inside my foggy, mouth breathing, headache, I have realised that getting out for some exercise, a good walk or even just hanging out the washing is enough to clear the blocked feeling a bit.  Very weird considering that means exposing myself to more grass.  Go figure!

The coke is still working for clearing a headache but doesn't clear out the sinuses.  Don't know why, will just go with the flow there.

I also need to stay on top of blowing my nose.  A lot!  I have soft tissues TG.  And I am now taking 3 herbal allergy tablets twice a day with 2 at lunch time instead of the 2 twice a day I used to do.  Hopefully that helps more too.

Overall the biggest factor in my health, both physical and mental, seems to be my mental attitude.  Ack!  It means I have to be self disciplined to do what works and not just wallow in the fog.  Not so easy for this lazy girl.

Best wishes
Jen
(And yes, I know, antihistamines would be an easy solution but have you read the potential side effects list on those, and read up on the long term use risks?  Not for me!)

  1. Hi Jen,
    I just discovered the amazing properties of vinegar to help a sore throat I found that it seemed to clear all of my passages quite well. I googld it later and found that a lot of people find it effective. Have you ever tried it?? Hope that you are feeling better soon.
