Malade du jour.
Or rather for the past two weeks.
Therefore, my resident physician, in the form of paramedic C, advised that I get a nasal irrigator. Which I duly did. Sort of works the same way as an enema. But the goop comes out of your other nostril. In long snotty strings. Sniffing them back would be kind of defeating the object so it has to be removed from the nose in the best way. Blowing. Sometimes the goop comes down your throat and not the other nostril. Much spitting ensues.
Not my finest moment I can tell you!
Bodily functions are such messy things! But I can’t sleep at night. Cough mixture just does not work for longer than two hours at a time, and I’m not planning on becoming a druggie anytime soon. Hence the nasal irrigation. With a saline solution over the basin, one nostril at a time, feeling as if you’ve got a warm ocean trouncing up your nose! Alas. If I want a decent night’s sleep in the near future, this looks to be the way I will be spending my days. Flushing out my nose until there’s not a single piece of snot left in any cavity.
This song went a long way to soothe the memory of stringy snot and salty solutions. Hope your day has been a LOT better than mine 😉
And then followed this one.
may your days be long upon the earth…
