That’s all it took until illness swept thru Casa de Chicky. More specifcally, Chicky. Nyquil is my poison, vicks is my perfume of choice, and I am eating lemon drops like candy…ok, they ARE candy, but you know what I mean.

One thing I haven’t tried yet, only because I feel like I am so stuffy I would choke, is a neti pot. Waterpik sent me this one (how did they know?!?). I am going to give it a try, but I am telling you right now – I can’t even put my face under the shower for fear I will get water up my nose – and you want me to WILLINGLY put water up there?

Have you tried a neti pot? Does it help? Do you have any other home remedies for my misery? Yes, I know, it’s just a cold, but it’s no fun having an empty house for 3 hours a day when you spend it curled up with a box of tissues…

  1. I had a really bad sinus infection recently and was dealing with major congestion – I was given a Neti pot to use for the first time and it was AMAZING…it took a couple of tries for me to get the hang of it – tilting your head just so, so the water goes in one nostril and out the other rather than the back of your throat…but I couldn’t believe how much it helped – cleared out A LOT of gunk…my doctor encouraged the use of it as well – great for when you’re dealing with allergies etc.. too
