I am suffering... and I am cheap... and I lack the time and proper motivation to see a doctor. I hate continually popping pills that don't help all that much.... so I went old school.
There's something in the air in Georgia that hates me. Something is making my life hell. Maybe it's the mold, maybe it's some sort of pollen... maybe it's just my daily dose of sawdust. What I do know is that antihistamines and sinus decongestants aren't doing their job. The sinus cavity behind my eyes... those pesky upper ones... they're not doing so well. My face is on fire.
What's a girl to do? Listen to her mother. Yeah. I know. Listen to mom.
Chop an onion. Boil some water. Pour on the boiling water, put your face over the bowl, tent with a towel and hang out for awhile. Think of it as an onion scented steam bath for your face.
My sinuses drained. I am happy.
I know it won't last, but a few hours with a clear head is all I need tonight. Tomorrow? I'll pick up a BIG bag of onions.
NOTE - if onions make you cry, you might want to keep your eyes closed.
