Trying Something New

I have been doing daily sinus rinses for about two years now. The morning rinse is a part of my daily routine, like brushing my teeth and eating breakfast. The evening rinse, however, is not so routine. It is not that I blow it off, I just simply don't remember or think about it. I needed a new plan to be able remember. Other CFers are doing hours of treatments everyday that I don't have to do. I know I have it easy. I can't take that for granted.

I decided to schedule a time to do my evening rinse, as opposed to just doing it before bed time. So at 8:00 pm, I stop what ever I am doing and go do my rinse. It takes less than 5 minutes. I have been doing this for about two weeks now and it is really helping. I think this will help me stay on top of my evening treatment.

I'm not really sure how much these rinses help. I think that is why I was only remembering to do my evening rinse some times. But, I want to be doing everything I can, so doctors know what works and what doesn't. If I can honestly say I did everything the doctors recommended and still end up with an infection, at least I know that I tried.

  1. I definitely think they help. I don't always remember to do mine, but when my sinuses start really bothering me I certainly remember and they really soothe and help.

    I never do mine before I lay down, tho, because of the drainage afterward.
