Have you ever been so sick you just wish your head would explode like that one guy in Scanners?
Man, that would be sweet relief.

Sweet relief, indeed. I feel your pain.

Yeah, but not the head exploding thing. I just want to vacuum the congestion out of my lungs sometimes.

Been there. When lying with my head under at least 2 pillows, I fantasize about my brains suddenly popping out my ears and nose and how good it would feel to have the pressure gone. Or wondering if there was something i could stick up my nose so I could "pop" my head like a balloon. Alas, never happens. Sorry, graphic but true.

Yes. Yesterday afternoon, when my family and my fiance's family went out to dinner together.

Yeah - my thought is usually "if I could just get somebody to drill a couple of smallish holes into my sinuses..."
Sorry you're hurting. Feel better.

My own head? No. But I know a few people who deserve that fate. (Not you, of course.)
I have been so physically nauseous, however, that I've begged for death. And go figure - my one brush with fame in the NY Times, and that's the set of posts they focus on out of a year's worth of material.
Oh, I'm sorry - were we talking about you?

Have you ever tried using a Neti pot? It's a device that is used to literally rinse mucus from one's sinuses. It takes a bit of getting used to, but I've found it worth it (although I haven't used it during a full-blown cold yet). Whenver I've been sick in the past I've fantasized about using a device like the "head-bug remover" from Total Recall to scrape out the congestion; rinsing it sounds just as good.
