I've had Chronic Sinusitis for 6 years.. I am 17 now, and basically has ruined my life :( It has made me sooo lazy I can't breathe. I've had 2 operations it works for the 1st week and then it just comes back.. NEVER goes away.. I use the Neilmed nose spray thing with hot water. Although they have only just diagnosed it last year, they have been trying to figure it out since I was 11..
I have a NASAL voice because of all the mucus that is in the back of my throat/sinuses, well thats what they say.. Also I was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 this year.. and because of all this I lost ALL my friends like 3 years ago.. I dropped out of school it was just too hard.. I got bullied because of my voice it was to hard to talk and when I did talk people just said what..?? and laughed at it.. Yes I did Speech Therapy for 2 years and it did ABSOLUTELY nothing.. they gave up.
Btw I used to be one of the "COOL" kids until all this started. I then became the loner that sits by himself at recess and lunch and never talks to anyone.. I don't have glasses though.. Most loners I see have glasses but not me thank god :D thats one good thing in my life at least.. (makes me less ugly lol)
Oh and btw the Chronic Sinusitis was so bad at one point they said I might die because there was so much mucus it could flood my brain at any time or something I dunno I forgot the exact words he said lol... that was like a few months ago before my 2nd operation.

Well that is basically my whole life story in 1 post.. well not yet, I've never kissed a girl/had a girlfriend, I fell off a cliff and nearly died (like 50 meters high, huge/sharp rocks all the way down) when I was 5. My grandpa died on September 13th (2 days before my birthday), my 11 year old dog died a week later from cancer (same reason my grandpa died) ..Ok now it is my whole life story.

Yeah, I have a great life...... But I know there are worse people out there.

Any suggestions/comments?? (about anything really.)

(about anything really.)Hi there,So, I've had puffiness and a slight indentation under my eyes since I was about three (I'm 20 now)...I was never really concerned why. But now I'm wondering if it could be because of chronic sinusitis. Have you ever experienced anything like I'm describing?
