Shall I Join the Neti Pot “Family”?

first-neti-pot.jpgFor a long time now, Christina has been trying to persuade me to try the Neti Pot. She firmly believes that it will help me clear my sinuses and relieve my headaches.

I have just as firmly been resisting her attempts to get me to try it. I’m not stupid – I’ve read all those horrifying blogs from people who have undergone this “water torture”!

Anyone who knows Christina, however, will know that she doesn’t give up easily. So what did I find when I returned home from my vacation with my husband a couple of weeks ago? Yes – you guessed it! A Neti Pot.

That, of course, prompted an immediate call to Christina. “What the heck is this for?” was how I graciously acknowledged her gift. “Just try it,” was her response.

Well, it’s here. It’s sitting on my counter, staring at me and daring me to try it. And I’m staring right back at it while carrying on the following monologue:

How bad can it be?
You know how bad it can be. You’ve read the blogs!
So are you going to be completely gutless?
Umm, yes!

Okay, okay. I know – I’m exaggerating (again). I mean, if Christina, who’s always been afraid of water and drowning, could summon up the courage to do it, I should be able to as well. So, maybe – just maybe I’ll give it a try one of these days.

If you don’t hear from me again, it’s because I drowned in my Neti Pot…
