Backside Sinus Infection

My yummy horse-size pills.

Oh joy! Look at the third warning on the list. That could be a backside sinus infection! You gotta love meds!

That sounds really bad doesn’t it? It does not mean what you think it means though. It means that instead of having the facial pain and pressure, I have had monsoon weirdness going on on the back of my head and base of my neck. As usual all Google searches had rather bleak outlooks. (Why do we Google our symptoms? Such a landmine riddled place is found there.) Only a few of them actually said Maybe you have a sinus infection!

This morning at the CVS Minute Clinic I learned:

1. When you have cold/allergy/flu symptoms for longer than three weeks you need to see someone.

2. I need to be taking Allegra.

3. The pain in my neck and weird headache was sinus pressure. It’s not a tumor!

4. To be grateful for my husband for his Arnold Schwarzenegger movie quoting which was correct.

5. Sometimes pharmacists think it is cool to make pills big enough to choke Godzilla!

Peace and Health be with you…



What Did I Tell You…..

I hate to say I told you so but a few blog entries ago I mentioned how thin the girls were who were on the new version of 90210. Way too skinny for my liking. Unfortunately it would appear that they have become even thinner.

Why do we champion the binge-and-purge set??? In this era of organic and pesticide free foods why are these women pressured not to put clean fuel in their bodies but to not eat at all? Nicole Richie, Kiersten Dunst, Kate Moss are not cute. They have the bodies of 10 year old girls, (actually I think I was beefier than them at that age.)

I would love to see how many calories they consume in a day and if their diets are balanced. And please don’t say they work out. Women who work out and live HEALTY lives with HEALTHY diets do not look like that. They look like Claire Danes walking down the street. See her? That is healthy. That is a great body. See how she has thighs?? Yeah, we as women are supposed to have those.

As I train for my 5K I see images of these kinds of bodies in magazines for running and pilates and it confirms my positive body image. The body that comes from working out on a regular basis, eating many small meals during the day and getting in some chocolate cake now and then. Even before my training began women like America Ferrara, Lela Ali, Mandy Moore, Eva Mendez always looked normal to me. Like the dolls I had as a child that with dark hair, eyes, and skin I like celebrities who look like me. That me is healthy and happy, not starving and angry.

Does anyone have a ham sandwich? I know some girls who need it.
