I haven't been able to breathe through my nose since I brought Stella home. Claritin does not help. Sudafed does not help. Blowing my nose does nothing. Afrin helps, but is DANGEROUSLY ADDICTIVE. At my stepfather's testimonial raving, I bought a neti pot, for which I am apparently too congested. My nose's fuckedupedness is too strong for centuries of yogic tradition, or wherever neti pots come from. This is beginning to push me into a depression. I'm sorry that I'm making NaBloPoMo as painful for you as it is for me. Sigh.
