Cold fix
I love using my sinus cleaner. I have a cold, but the only way I can tell is a slight bit of sore throat. Because my sinuses aren't clogged, I'm not as tired as I would be [I can sleep, it's not a labor to breathe]. Plus, my nose isn't sore due to constantly being blown.

BF, who has the same cold and is not cleaning his sinuses, is not faring as well.

Is this something like a neti pot, or what?

It is the neti pot, just a different configuration. I started with the tea pot, which I liked. I'm now using the squirt bottle, which I like even more. That one REALLY cleans you out.

I need to try this, to see if it works with my particular allergy/sinus issues. But I can't get mentally past the 'snort liquid right up OMG into your skull' notion. Anything encouraging you can tell me to get me past that place in my mind?

I had the exact same problems as you, and my neti sat at the house for 2-3 weeks before I even tried it.

What got me starting was that friends used it, and they said that it really helped. The first few times you use it, it will feel reaaallllyyyy weird. However, once you've used it for 3-5 days, you should start noticing a huge difference. And the weird feeling will go away the more you get used to it (as well as the more you clean out of your sinuses).

I no longer have sinus headaches, and my allergic reactions to scents (despite smelling more of them) has dramatically decreased. It's decreased, IMNAAHO, because I have less allergens in my system to set me off. So the little bits I do smell have less effect on me.

Also if you try it and can't stand it, I'll let you throw things at me the next time we meet face-to-face. How's that for incentive? *g*

Okay, that all makes good sense, and I'll keep it all in mind. Next time I'm out contemplating the equipment to buy, I'll remind myself I get to pelt you with stuff if it doesn't work! :D Thanks!
