Sinuses Shminuses!

riverbrellaMy sinuses are feeling much better, although I think I’ve realized that I need to elevate my head at night. On the weekends, when I’m up late and hubby has to work in the morning, I sleep downstairs in the guest room (where my computer is). In that room, we have a futon with a sunken center and big, fluffy pillows, and I’ve noticed that I fall asleep much easier. Last night, sleeping in my bed upstairs with my flat pillow (which I’ve always preferred), as soon as I laid my head down, my forehead started to THROB. It’s so hard to fall asleep with that pain and pressure. So tonight, I’m stealing the big, fluffy guest room pillows and see if that helps.

I’m trying really hard to avoid having sinus surgery. I have heard and read some scary and painful things about those surgeries, and both my PCP and my former boss recommend that I try to deal with my sinus issues and avoid the surgery. The only time they really bother me this bad is in the Spring and the Fall when the seasons are transitioning, especially since in New England the weather takes a while to settle into the next season, so we have several weeks where it can be 70 degrees one hour and 35 the next, and the air pressure fluctuates so much your ears pop. Not fun!

I’ve done a few more photo manipulations. Is it weird that one day I do a whimsical picture like the girl in the umbrella floating down the stream and the next I do an image of a post-apocalyptic woman in the gas mask and green dreads sitting in a field of dead grass? My BFF Nichole says “Not for you…” Haha!

Well, at least I’m in a creative mood! I missed it! And not only is it sparking my artistic creativity, but my writing imagination as well! I am late getting the April Challenge Prompt up for Thoughtdivers, so time for me to sign off here and head over there! If I don’t blog again soon, hope you all have a wonderful week!

PS – Ooo, and I almost forgot! My friend fnordboy and I should have Principia Esoterica up soon! We’ve only been tossing that idea around for the last eight years! We are both serious procrastinators! It’s coming soon! I promise!

  1. that first picture is probably my favorite that you have thus far… so pretty!
    I hope you are over your sinus issues soon. This year has been terrible for you. :( Maybe the surgery would be OK for you? I have heard some very positive and negative feedback… I guess it depends on the person.
