The stuffy side of life

I’ve had a sinus infection for over a month, so today I decided that I would blog about my sinus issues.

All my life, I’ve suffered through sinus infections and it’s sucked. A lot. It took a while for doctors to diagnose me with a ridiculous amount of allergies and chronic sinusitis, but alas that is where I stand today. I’ve gone from doctor, to allergist, to ENT for well over 18 years trying to find some relief. I’ve been doing allergy drops (similar to allergy shots, but they  go under my tongue and I administer them myself) for over four years, which helps, but living in the worst part of the country for allergy sufferers has put a damper on my progress.

I had sinus surgery two years ago, and although it helped my breathing and reduced the frequency of my infections, it doesn’t seem to have had the effect I was hoping for. I remember people always telling me I wasn’t sick “you don’t have a fever,” or “you don’t have a cough, so you’re not sick.” Little did they know my face felt like it was going to explode and my body felt like it was just going to collapse into a pile of mush.

If you’ve never suffered a sinus infection, I pray you never have to.
