falling

So get this. I fell down my apartment stairs this morning on my way to work. I've complained on here before about feeling like I have ear problems, well, this doesn't make me feel any better. Thankfully, I caught myself, and my coffee mug fell much further then I did. I have a sore ankle and shin, but other then that, I seem to be okay. I was able to shake it off, put on different (safer) shoes and go to work a few minutes late. I am WAY to young to feel this old though. At 23 I should not be worrying about falling down the stairs, constant ear aches, sinus pain and well, feeling completely crappy all the time. I see my doctor next week though and I plan on be very assertive.

Work was okay today. Nothing all that exciting, well, one of my clients got a job, that was exciting. I'm so happy for her! However, as I mentioned previously, it's a lot easier for our job developers to know that they did a good intervention then it is to evaluate all the work the two of us did in counselling, the advocacy pieces I did with her and the community referrals, all of which helped get her to the point where she was confident enough to interview well.

Have you tried using the Neti Pot? I have chronic sinus issues, ear issues (and clumsiness!) and this thing is a MIRACLE as far as I'm concerned. I use it twice a day on bad sinus days, otherwise just once in the morning. Seriously - I feel SO much better since using it.

Here's a list of a bunch of them:http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&source=hp&q=neti+pot&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=AKG7Sv-ZMqLOtAO5ytjcBQ&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=title&resnum=4

I use the NeilMed one - so easy!
