I saw my first local ENT specialist today. He was a very nice man and he confirmed my symptoms. I did not, however have any cyst in my sinus, it has just collapsed, hence the feeling that someone sitting on my face. And the pain in my teeth is very correctly "something lying on top of them".
So now, the verdict is to try steriods for 5weeks and if unsuccessful it's surgery again, but after leaving the ENT surgery, I realized that I've read that steriods raise the cortisol levels in the body and that, I already have to much of, so I am not sure how well that's going to go down with the endocrinologist. The prospect of sinus surgery is, *how shall I put it*, challenging my outlook on life at present.
So, the Swedish expression of today, which I am going to teach you is "gilla läget" pronounced "yiller leget" *with a silent british r and the first e of leget pronounced like "level or everest". It means, that how booring or bad a situation is, you just have to adjust, you have to find a way to like it or to see it in a positive light. Gilla means "to like". *I am not adjusting very well at the moment, but I aim to..*
Yesterday we decided to kill some waiting time by going to..guess.. IKEA. O has been playing the hulk the past couple of days switching our bedroom into office and vice versa. This meant moving 6 double IKEA wardrobes and similar amount of chester drawers full of things, but the result is very nice and spacious (we now have a bedroom of ca 40sq meters). This all thanks to our partying neighbor above our former bedroom, who have started a habit of partying until ca 5am a couple of nights a week (he started in October and we just had enough around Christmas time.
We just HAD to have a picture to match our new room, so when going to IKEA we decided to buy the picture above.
Just before getting to the checkout O had a feeling he should double check the picture, which was rolled up in a box. I am very glad that he did, because he realized that we had the wrong picture in our box..fancy coming home, hoping to put that chic touch to your new bedroom and this is what you've bought, a 2m*1.40m sized world map..:
