My allergies have been at full scream for the past couple of weeks, and this weekend all that drainage seems to have become infected. Because my head fills up like a fishtank and it feels like a brick between my eyes, I have trouble sleeping. Then, in order to alleviate the pressure, I think a 3 am bath sounds like a good idea and I sit in a steamy tub with a hot washcloth on my face trying to find relief. It does feel better, but it doesn't last. So then I get back into bed only to roll from side to side as one nostril fills, then the other. Such a night leads to a very cranky morning.
This is not a great way to start the week.
