Sara, I was actually using a Sinu-rinse upright squeeze bottle when I "neti'd" wrong that time, but the same thing could happen with a neti pot... You aren't supposed to force water up into your sinuses. If you're plugged up, it's a bad idea to try to unplug with a rinse because it could go where it shouldn't. Which I didn't know til afterward. I was frustrated with congestion, forced the water up, and it shot into the wrong place. And felt like my ear exploded. For real.

I have hit a new low. I just got into bed and discovered dried cat puke at the foot of the covers... and I'm not getting up to do anything about it. Cuz we have no other comforters and I'm also too tired. I'm sleeping with cat puke.

Ash, come help me clean?

Oh sweet baby Jesus. I'm hyperventilating. Haha.

The other night B peed in my bed and I threw a towel down and grabbed a Sponge Bob blanket...leaving DH on wet sheets with a wet comforter.

Joanie, I've been there. No worries.

I passed out tonight almost as soon as Conner did... Woke up when DH got home with even less of a voice than I had before. I do appreciate having kids that sleep though. Man, I'd be screwed.

Nicole, yay for the potty pee.

Joanie, I didn't realize it was possible to force it with a traditional neti. And mmm, cat puke.

In all the excitement of this month, I've quietly neglected to mention the end of my relationship while I tried to sort my emotions. I'm still not sure how much I want to talk about it publicly, but it's beginning to feel dishonest to keep it hidden. We are continuing to live together non traditionally as co-parents for financial reasons, but I've moved to a different bedroom and we are dividing everything. It's difficult. I haven't even told my parents or kids because it's easier to stay quiet.

Wow, Sara, I'm sorry you're going thru this. Will keep you in my thoughts.

:grouphug Sara!

(As for neti pot, I'm not sure you can force it unless you do some additional stupid moves like I probably would... if I were desperate, I would've inhaled through my nose at the same time... I'm dumb as heck about that stuff. But! I do know there are other mistakes to be made if you blow your nose incorrectly afterward... or if you don't use sterile water... yeah, I was using tap water most of the time..... I never read instructions... Oops)

Nicole, yay for pee in the potty!

 

Joanie, I don't think that you can force the water or the congestion upward with a neti pot.  Because you have to tip and angle your head to get the water to flow through, it's not going to explode upwards, it can only follow gravity and that's not forceful.  Yes,  you are supposed to use sterilized water, but as I've said before, I've never done that and can't imagine any of the yogis in India have been doing that for thousands of years either.  The brain killing amoeba was in tropical climates and I'm not entirely sure I believe that anyway...  So I say, neti pot with impunity!

OMgosh, Sara!  I'm blind sighted!  I had no idea you two were having big enough problems that you would split up!  Do you feel like you can share more about what is happening?  Maybe via group PM?  Is this the real cause of your weight loss?  And why she didn't come with you camping?  I'm so sorry you are going through this!   Thank you for sharing and we are all here for you.  :grouphug

Thanks for the hugs. I'm mostly ok. Moving on and all. I've told a couple of people privately, so now I'm coming out here.

Yeah, no one knew about my bankruptcy, either... Life's been crappy for a while. We moved to Columbus as a last ditch attempt at saving things. It worked as well as can be expected. Life's more expensive now and we lost all the community we had. Woo. This is certainly a contributing factor in the weight loss. No one has to be terribly sorry for me. I'm the one who ultimately ended it and she's mad as hell but starting to date again. The world keeps turning.

Oh Sara, I'm sorry. I know you said we don't have to be sorry for you, but I am anyway. And I'm sending a virtual hug. It sounds like you're handling well, but of course you are. Because you're awesome. If you need to vent though, you know we're good for that.
post #3013 of 3384

Sara, you know very well that no matter what we may have done or imagined ourselves to have done, we are all still deserving of sympathy. It takes two to break a relationship. You deserve the same amount of love and support that you always give. You are an amazing person, and there are a lot of people who care very much about you. Let them support you.

 

Sending you so many hugs.

I'm not feeling awesome, but thank you.

Man, Amanda, trying to make me cry? Thank you for your support. It's been huge.

Same to you.

I read all this then went back to bed because I thought I was dreaming.
Now that I'm awake and pumping... I see that it's real.

I'm sorry, Sara. About the bankruptcy and the girlfriend. I can't imagine still living together afterwards, especially with her dating again.

I'm also super impressed that you were able to keep it all to yourself. But that's what we're here for. To rant/bitch/release tension.

ETA: I pumped six ounces. smile.gif

Nicole, this is a month old. Maybe talk to a pharmacist?
post #3018 of 3384
Oh, we cross posted, Nicole. As you may recall, I was worried she was reading along.
post #3019 of 3384
I feel better today. Everything is breaking up, which hurts my incision from coughing... But at least it's going away.
post #3020 of 3384
Mucinex/guiafenison helps me a lot with thinning secretions and coughing stuff out. It's one of the few I've been comfortable taking while nursing.
