So yesterday after work I did as I said I would. I headed down to my local Walgreen’s and bought a neti pot. Took it home, read the instructions and filled it up. What happened next was just very strange. Basically you tilt your head to one side and pour the water in one nostril which fills up your sinuses and drains out the other side. Yeah, weird. Augh. A couple of hints, if you are planning on trying this, make sure you have some tissue handy so you don’t have to run around the house looking for something to blow your nose in while the excess water is dripping out. And also, remember to breathe out of your mouth. This is very very important. OK, so I did one side and then the next and as much as I wanted to say this was a total waste of time, it works. Totally works. Very brightly colored stuff came out my nose. I can breathe. And when I stepped on the scale this morning I was down 2 pounds. Who knew mucus weighed so much?
