Dear Sinuses,

I have a few things I'd like to tell you. You're getting a list, since I don't think you deserve a formal, nice letter. This is probably because I don't like you.

1. You are making me a very "unhappy camper" which is not my style at all.

2. I wish you would play nice and cooperate given that the many other areas/systems of my body are affected by your ignorance.

3. Didn't you just visit me labor day weekend Mr. Sinus infection? Did you miss me? Back so soon?

4. You'd better stay out my chest or else, buddy!

5. I want to thank you for making me do more of my favorite (insert sarcasm here) sinus rinses, yummy. ;)

6. Your sincere evilness has made me not be able to taste foods adequately. Don't you know I love to eat!?

7. Your constant drainage (which I will admit has not been as bad this time, thanks) makes me feel like a piece of sandpaper is in my throat. Oh and the hoarseness.....well that's just awesome, I love sounding like a dude when I talk.

8. Your making me stay in this weekend, however I'm glad you've decided to visit on such a rainy weekend.

9. If I didn't have a mirror, I'd swear Mr. Sinuses that my head is the size of a fat watermelon, weighing about 87 pounds.

10. Your drainage has made me feel so nauseated today that I thought I was going to barf on one of my patients. That wouldn't have been very nice of me!

Thanks for listening, and please go away soon.
Jess ;)

I just read your "Dear Sinuses" letter to Shane & he got a kick out of it. He's been batteling his sinuses for awhile now too. I don't know how you guys do the sinus rinses. He says it feels like he's drowning!! But you do what you have to huh!!

You poor thing!! I love that you still have your sense of humor while you are sick though. :)

Um....SO FUNNY! I so agree. I am ready for mine to heal from the stupid 5th surgery! Hang in there girl!

Jess that was really funny! Sorry your sinuses are being such a pain in the a$$. But, at least you have a sense of humor about it! Hang in there!
