I am smiling because I am feeling wonderful. Nope, didn't win the lottery. But the intense sinus headaches I've been experiencing a lot lately are gone.
Its always driven me crazy that even in winter I suffer from allergies. I am usually on antihistamines (Aerius) all year round. It isn't goldenrod that gets me the worst, it seems to be dust, and what gets stirred up by the furnace - even though Adam is anal about replacing our furnace filters - is apparently a real trigger.
But after doing a bit of research this week I discovered another culprit for my intense sinus pain: the dry air! Although the inside of my nose has been extremely dry and sore the past few weeks, I didn't realize that the dry air can also cause inflammation in the sinuses. After digging out our humidifier and letting it run during the night, I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER!!!
So that's reason enough for me to celebrate this weekend. I also have a rare Saturday off work so this is looking up to being a nice, relaxing couple of days. Have a safe and healthy weekend!!
