It's like clockwork, almost - if The Man brings home a cold, then he will weather it out, mostly, by feeling flagged whereas I will get a sinus infection. A heavily blocked nose, basically.
As much as I don't like these nights, I also know that it won't last long, not being able to sleep. Tonight I was on and off sleeping 22:12-2:24 and since then I've been sitting at the kitchen table, dosing up on hot tea, paracetamol, decongestant, olbasoil, carmolis and a muffin - the latter because I just feel. so. crap. It's 3:11 AM now and soon, the sun will be up, as will the rest of my family - about three hours.
But the part that makes it inconvenient is that today is my first day at work. And I will go in, I will - but I will look like a million bucks with my bloodshot eyes, swollen glands and a puffing noise every time I breathe in or out.
I don't know why I get such heavy sinus colds. I have a few ideas.
But it's a pain in the, you know...
I just can't breathe. Not through my nose, anyway.
