A Letter to Sinus Infection




Dear Mr. Sinus Infection,

     I am not sure how to make it clear to you that you are not a welcome visitor.  Throughout my life you have shown up on my doorstep as a best friend would.  We are not best friends.  We are not friends at all.  You seem to become more boisterous and messy every time you come to visit.  The older I get the less patience I have for you.

     You cause me to miss work and fun times.   You keep me from getting things done that need my attention.  On this stay you kept me from enjoying two snow days. 

You make me cranky around my family which means they suffer too.  Guess what, they are not your friends either.  They do not welcome your presence any more than I do.

     Every time you drop in for an unwanted sojourn I have to go see a medical type person and spend money on prescribed medications that I would prefer not to have to take.  You wreak havoc on my sleep cycle and this interferes with my husband's sleep.

     You are rude and unruly.  You have no manners whatsoever.  You use up all our tissues and a great deal of our Tylenol and/or Ibuprofen.

      I am tired of the aches and pains you bring.  I do not like the coughing you cause.  I do not like the way you make me feel at all.  I do not want you around.  Please go away and never come back.  Do not send your cousins the flu, strep throat, and ear infections to my house either.  None of you are welcome here.

     Take your germs with you and leave.  Please be advised that another visit from you will not be welcome.  It is time for you to be gone for good.

Sincerely,

An Unhappy and Unwilling Host

    1. They prescribed a combo of antibiotics and steroids and it seems to be working a lot faster than just antibiotics. Although, I'm still really tired. Thank you, though!

  3. I am grateful I've never had a sinus infection. From what I understand they can take a long time to clear up.

    1. You are very lucky. I've been prone to them since I was a child. Luckily, they don't come as frequently as they did before I got married.

  4. I get a sinus thing pretty much every year, and it's miserable. So hard to shake off

    1. I used to get them several times a year. I don't get them that often anymore, but it seems to take longer to get over them now.

  7. Knock on wood - I have been spared with the sinus trouble for a few years now. However, my son seems to be having permanent trouble with it, so I would agree that sinus infection is an ass!

    1. I will knock on wood for you, also. I don't wish this on anyone. I hope your son doesn't suffer too much or too often. Because they are royal asses! :-D

  9. That sinus infection doesn't sound like any fun at all. It reminds me of being a kid and wishing I would get sick so I could miss school.

    I wanted something that didn't really bother me and I got the flu, knocked me on my butt.

    Always better to be healthy. Hope you feel better soon.
