OK so I’ve been sick the past week. I took 4.5 days off work – this is the longest I’ve been out of action ever. And I missed my powerlifting comp that would have been today.
The Other Half now also has my flu, and our cat Bobo has been beaten up by the mean cat again. It’s a miserable household, this one.
I started a blog about my cats, because cats are awesome, and my cats get up to all sorts of things. You can find it (and subscribe to it by email if you like cat stories) here: Bobo & Cleo.
So I actually have a residual problem from the flu that is driving me crazy with annoyance, deafness, tinnitus and pain. One ear is blocked. It’s a sinus thing, not a wax thing. I breathe through my nose just fine, but the tube between my ear and throat/nose/eye area is blocked. The following things haven’t worked: Idiot doctor, steam, decongestant nasal spray, saline spray (through nose and ear, desperate enough to try eyes), decongestant tablet (whatever the new pseudoephedrine substitute is), antibiotics (which I doubt I needed, but I did see an idiot). Any useful ideas? I would rather cut off half my head that put up with this much longer.
