Phlegmicidal Thoughts

Da Goddess @ 08:25

If I could just manage to get my body from producing all these horrendous secretions, I might actually feel somewhat sane again. Of course, that’s all relative. The sanity thing.

Right now, all I want to do is kill every single mucous cell in me. I’m tired of having stuff dripping down the back of my throat. I’m tired of feeling something stuck between my nose and throat (c’MON! It happens and it sucks!). Sometimes it feels like the mucous is so thick and ropy that it’s tied to my septum, my eardrums, and dangling deep into my lungs. It’s gross. It’s impossible to get rid of. I’m tired of horking like some crazed animal in an attempt to get the stuck thing to go one way or the other. I’m tired of blowing my nose. I’m tired of coughing. I’m tired. I’m tired of being tired.

I slept about 15 hours yesterday.

And I’m fairly certain this whole thing started at faire. The pollen from the trees, the dust on the ground (I know for sure that I blew about 4lbs of the stuff out of my nose the first night alone), and the general change in the weather. You add all that together and it’s the perfect storm for my sinuses. Once I start down that path, it goes deep into my head and then my lungs. Doesn’t matter that it starts off allergenic, I can turn that into a bacterial infection in two seconds. Thankfully, this wasn’t super painful. Merely irritating. And since I’ve been through this a million times in my life, I know the best remedy is a combination of fluids, time, decongestants, cough syrup, rest, and grumbling. If the pain increases and if this lasts more than two weeks, I’ll have to consider a pricey trip to a doctor and some antibiotics. For now, though, I’m working the other program.

Meanwhile, please send phlegmicidal thoughts my way. In the immortal words of Bartles and Jaymes, thank you for your support.

  1. You too? My sister in law and I are both struggling with sinus infections brought on by rampant allergy attacks… but not lung stuff, thank goodness!

    Get better soon!!!

  2. Thanks. You get better, too!

    Hopefully you don’t get the back and forth stuff…one hour of feeling better, six hours of feeling like shit.

    I would kill for a single day of feeling good.
