my only complaint about milwaukee

Madison – A statewide workplace smoking ban that includes restaurants and taverns will start July 5, 2010, according to a deal reached Wednesday in the Legislature.

I’m totally holding off on going back to bars in Milwaukee until this ban has gone through. And it makes me want to consider this in all future travel plans, too!

I came home from Milwaukee and have promptly developed a sinus infection. I know it’s a combination of the smoke I inhaled while in Milwaukee and not getting any sleep all weekend. I sure as hell wouldn’t trade the weekend for not having a sinus infection, but it’s still making me a little angry.

Does anyone have any sinus infection tips that don’t involve the neti pot? That damn thing makes me feel like I’m drowning EVERY TIME. It seriously takes me an hour just to psyche myself up to do it and then I have to distract myself by counting when I’m pouring that shit into my face. Blah. I hate it. But not as much as I hate not being able to breathe.

  1. if it’s an actual infection, it won’t go away without antibiotics! but if it hasn’t become infected yet (it takes a while), decongestants will help. you need to clear out your sinuses so the infection doesn’t have anywhere to hang out.

  2. I’m hoping it’s not quite to the infection phase, but I’m taking decongestants and drinking water like a mother to try to flush it out. Yuck.

What's up?
