My sinuses want to kill me. That's been a part of my life since childhood, and I am thankful my mom did the work of finding out *why* and solving the root cause by age 3. It means I have functional ears.

But *damn* does fucked sinuses suck during a respiratory pandemic.
Just every day out here "Oh, I coughed up a little blood? Is that normal blood coughing or deadly plague that could kill my children?!"

@silverwizard I hear ya. I had a rhinovirus based cold recently (COVID tested negative), and they always turn into sinus infections after that. The drip that causes coughing is what gets me. Always worry people think I have the 'rona.
Yeah, I try to avoid the public while I'm coughing but it's always awkward
