Another bout of BP started in mid Feb and continues to this day. The last time it gradually faded after about 12 weeks leaving a slight eye issue when I yawn or sneeze. This time it seems worse and my self-esteem is suffering more than I can remember from the last bout. I am in law enforcement and communicate every day with citizens and it is taxing at best. I am going to an ENT tomorrow to see if my breathing can be helped, this round seems to be sinus intensive. I tried acupuncture and it felt good but it was not the silver bullet I was hoping for. Electrical stim, vitamins, massage, ice, heat, acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments have been my weapons of choice with no relief from any of it.
Family, friends and co-workers have been great but it only goes so far, they say it looks better, but I see myself and hear myself. I do not see any change and more and more people ask me to repeat myself. Today I am hoping that it just goes away and does not last forever. It seems worse than it was 2 weeks ago. Honestly, this just sucks and I know it could be worse, but it still sucks. Funny thing is, everyone knows someone who has had it, but I have only met one person who has been in my shoes. Thanks for the vine and allowing me to rant.
