This post could not have come at a better time for me as I sit with tissues all around for a stuffy and runny nose at the same time.  Please explain to me how that is possible.  I also sit with a cotton ball in one ear because I’m pretty sure the sinus pressure has traveled elsewhere.

In fact, I took out a little frustration on my sinus pressure by sketching out exactly how I feel with the Sudafed OPEN UP™ app on Facebook this afternoon…


The most obvious thing you can tell from my sketch is… I’m not exactly Picasso, right?  But it’s truly how I feel – I can’t tell you if my nose is going to run or be stuffy 5 minutes from now and if my head feels like it’s being hit with a sledgehammer or exploding at the same time.  Tell me – how can a little sinus pressure make you feel so crazy!?


And the infographic above is so right.  I absolutely cracked up at the idea of just how many women are almost thankful when they get sick instead of their sweet husbands, am I right?!  Although definitely sweet because he’s said the line “I wish I was sick instead of you” a few times this week, I reply with “No, I’m kinda glad it’s me.”  HA!

But opening up about the sinus suffering really does help, which is why I call my best friend to vent about the frustrations of being sick at the same time my kids are and why opening up about how my sinus pressure effects me in the form of art {remember that lovely sketch above}, really helped!


I encourage you to do the same – no more silent suffering sinuses – let’s band together and open up!

Sudafed knows that suffering from sinus pressure and pain can leave individuals feeling crushed, beat down, congested and even squeezed, desperately looking for a way to open up. Serious sinus sufferers are invited to creatively share how their sinus pain and pressure looks and feels to them by using Sudafed’s OPEN UP™ application on Facebook.

Then, beginning on December 2, the Sudafed Facebook community will vote for one of five finalist sketches that best illustrates the pains of sinus pressure. The winner will receive $5,000 and a chance to have their work included in a Sudafed advertising campaign. For more information, visit the Sudafed Facebook page
