And then I thought I might die

I might have a sinus infection. I have had a sinus headache for like 3 days straight. Granted, I have a low pain tolerance, but this one is a doozy. Seriously every time I bend over, I think I might pass out from pain. And this time, I am not even exaggerating.

My mom said I should go to the doctor. I decided to use WebMD instead. So I looked up "sinus infection" and have spent the better part of the last 30 minutes or so reading about various forms of mucous and discharge. Now I also feel like I might throw up, and my head is still in the early stages of explosion from all the pressure.

  1. Becca! Go to your doctor! Why would you deal with the pain when you can get it all cleared up with a simple visit?

  2. Praise the Lord! May He bless you with wisdom and strength to be poured out as a drink offering for the sake of the precious unwanted children of the world. And may He give you great love for your daughter and husband. Blessings from Africa.

    Go to the doc -get it before it gets worse!

  4. Go to the doctor and get some drugs, lady! Last year I thought I was going to die. I thought for sure it was pneumonia, or the bird flu, or something. Nope - a sinus infection. Seems like it should have a scarier sounding name...

  5. I love what everyone else wrote--go to the doctor! as a person who hates the inconvenience of taking time out to go to the doctor, it seems like it would be well worth it in this instance :) Feel better!

  6. so something that I have found while being pregnant is using a sinus or nasal rinse. You can buy a kit at any drug store. It is slightly nasty but provides tremendous, quick relief!

  8. Becca, thank you for your sweet comment! I love your photo with your sweetie too! I am very sorry about the sinus infection. I went thru a basic cold recently and seems like still getting rid of stuff, but a sinus infection is a whole lot more serious! I say don't delay either! But I also pray healing in the name of Jesus! Please, take care of yourself!
