Still sick. Does anyone know a way to unstuff your nose? My sinuses are driving me crazy. Sudafed (either version, OTC and semi-otc) has stopped working for me. I am too afraid of addiction to try nasal spray. I got addicted to it before and it was so hard to stop using it. That rebound stuffiness is a bitch! I just want to breathe though!

This dadgum cold is still hanging around. Ugh.

Also, happy belated Columbus Day to all of you. I didn't get to get out to any of the sales because I'm sick. But I did find time to raise a glass to Columbus. Extra cheers to all my North American friends who wouldn't exist had Columbus not started the ball rolling towards our ancestors getting together in the New World and eventually having all of us :D

Blah, I have a cold. It's not really bad I guess but I feel like crap. I haven't slept well in like 3 days because I can't breathe well. I wish they would come out with a cure for the common cold!

Just read a disturbing report by Consumer Reports about arsenic in rice and rice products. I don't eat rice or rice products since I went off of carbohydrates, but I know a lot of you do. This article is very interesting and there is a linked PDF that has the measurements of which rice is the worse, also their recommendations on how much you can safely eat.

"Every study has shown that the perception of having a food allergy is more often wrong than right," says Robert Wood, a pediatric allergist at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. "Only about 25% of people who think they have a food allergy will actually have one."

Much more at the source!

I used to laugh at George Jetson when he complained that he had "pushbutton finger" from doing his work all day, now I sympathise. (Although mine is sore from texting, still...)

So I found intermittent relief by bringing some water with some oregano and thyme just to a boil then making a tent with a towel and breathing in the steam. Standing in the shower for a while helped too. The weirdest thing is that it gets a bit better if I'm standing up and worse if I'm sitting. Even when I'm careful to hold my head the same way. It's bizarre.

Sinuses

I hate my sinuses so much. I am so stuffy today, and this has been going on for some time now. I know the pollen is awful this year but I am just ready to rip my sinuses out by the roots. (That is, if they weren't just empty spaces, although mine aren't empty they are blocked.) I don't even know what I'm saying now, I'm just babbling because I CAN'T BREATHE!

Weight Loss

I've lost 3.4 pounds! Woohoo!

It's been over a year since I quit smoking, and now I'm losing the weight I've gained from that. I'm going to be one of those horrible smug people who are all "I'm in my 40s and I'm healthier than I was in my 20s."

Did any of you look at that link I posted yesterday? If so, how do you think that would look in an adult's bedroom?

And last but not least, I leave you with this picture I shamelessly stole from one of my FB friends:

The good: I've lost 2 pounds this past week so my low-carbing is working. YEA! I like the low-carb diet (I'm doing Atkins, specifically) because I'm not hungry all the time.

I finished The Hunger Games and have started the second one. Catching Fire I think is the title. I did enjoy it, more than I thought I would. The second one is starting out very tensely!

The bad: My daughter's husband's deployment has been extended indefinitely. He was supposed to come home this weekend.

The ugly: Pollen. Pollen counts are at record highs and my sinuses are pretty upset about it. As are my eyes. Even my Claritin is barely keeping the symptoms at bay. I wonder if I should switch to Allegra?

Since my new laptop (which I have affectionatly named "The Beast") is so much bigger than my old laptop, it doesn't fit into my bag, so I've been perusing Amazon to find a new one. You can't find anything but boring black around here, which...blah. I'm a fuchsia girl! Anyway, what do y'all think about this one?

 Pretty fuchsia backpack

Morning

My period, which waited such a long time to arrive, has decided to make up for lost time and I'm sooo heavy! And also I woke up with a massive headache this morning. I took 2 migraine tablets, an allergy tablet and 2 sudafed. Let's see if that will work. I feel like there's a little guy in my head pounding with a sledge hammer.

On a hilarious note, I decided to make a layered jello. So last night I made the first layer, black cherry, and this morning added a second layer, strawberry. It looks like a bowl of blood! LOL. I think I will call it Jello a la Lestat. The darkness of the black cherry on the bottom is what really sets it off, then the bright red of the strawberry. It's hilarious!

I woke up with the worst headache today. I hate waking up with one because it seems that when I do that, I'll have it all day and nothing will work to get rid of it. If I just get a headache in the course of the day, I can usually get rid of it.

I also seem a bit puffy/bloated. I wonder if they are connected? Anyway, I took a Diurex for the puffiness. Hope that gets rid of it.

OMG, this cold is never going to end! I just sneezed so hard my eyes squirted. That's never happened to me before. I'm coughing up lung bits. I am so glad I quit smoking because smoking during this would kill me for sure. It's been over a week! Colds aren't supposed to last this long!

I felt like I was coming down with something for a couple of days.  Stuffy head, stinging in my sinuses, scratchy throat, etc.  I worried it might be the flu coming on, but then it all just went away.  So yea!  I don't have the flu!
