You know what I would consider fair?

I would call it fair if, as consolation for having the "sinus infection that laughs in the face of 3 (count them 3!) antibiotics," my sense of smell was diminished a bit. You know that whole hyper-olfactory sense? Yeah, I shouldn't be able to have that and what feels like three elephants sitting on my head. It really should be an either/or type deal...

But, if there's anything we all know, it's that fair very rarely enters into the equation.

It's certainly not the worst thing that I've got going on, but it just seems illogical that my sinuses are so clogged that I have to turn my head every three minutes or else that side starts to throb and my eye waters, and yet I can also smell that somebody has their fireplace going down the street. And that Mrs. PUS spilled gasoline in the driveway (Which is right outside my window. Yeah, my love for her knows no bounds.) when she tried to fill up the snow blower.

Doesn't that just seem wrong? Smelling or snot, but not both. That should be a rule.

I feel for you. I'm still having sinus/allergy issues. My goblet cells work too dang well(cellls that make mucus). My nose is either runny, dry yet clogged, plain ol' clogged and irritating. I've been using saline sprain but it's no miracle cure. I also have the hypersmell problem. Try having teenage boys who pour the dang cheap cologne over their heads! They can leave the house and I still smell the AX(Disgusting) 4 hours later. So for both of us I must say: ARRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
