Update on the health front

Sinuses still hurt. But not as much. I think the herbal gunk is finally starting to do some good. Also, I figured out how to make it tolerable: mix it with Emergen-C. The tangerine flavoring and the sugar serve to cut the horrid, grass-like* flavor of the herbs to a still-noticeable but mostly-okay aftertaste. And hey, some extra Vitamin C isn't going to hurt, either.

Still no word from the doctor about the sinuplasty. I think it may be time for me to call them back and poke them about it.

And, apropos of nothing in particular, this may just be the cutest thing ever: Grumpy Cat Plush from ThinkGeek.

-------

*That's grass-like, not "like grass". Alas, if it only tasted as good as grass does, I might be able to handle it better.

'grass-like, not "like grass"'

Jægermeister™ is infinitely preferable to the straight-up taste of this herbal crap, lemme tell ya.

Heh. That hat is cute. :) But I think I still prefer the plush.

What's JM's proof? Nyquil is 25%ABV, so 50 proof cold/flu 'med'. Plus JM's herbal, right? No vitamin C tho'.
Think of combining the GC hat with severed head makeup....

I have a different medicine to recommend...it is German and has cleared up my sinuses like woah. It used to be you couldn't buy it in the States...but the wonders of Amazon save all. It is German hippy herbal and excellent. It is called Gelomyrtol and you can get it on amazon.

It is a gel cap you should take on an empty stomach that includes a bunch of essential oils including eucalyptus oil, pine oil, lemon peel extract, myrtle and stuff like that. It is amazing!!!!!
