Usually works for me, but not this time. I have the plague as well (only it's really only a sinus infection). It's only bad when I'm standing up, sitting down, turning my head from side to side, or trying to use my eyeballs. Oh yeah- and breathing is kind of a pain. I now have some wonderful antibiotics, so I'm sure by tomorrow I'll be as good as new (see it's that power of positive thinking)!
