Have you ever wondered why you even have mucus? I am a weirdo and that is something I have thought about since I was little. Our bodies have things called mucus membranes. Those membranes consist of passage ways that allow for a connection between our bodies and the world around us. Our mouths, nose, respiratory, digestive, and reproductive tracts are all considered mucus membranes.
I guess I have to look at my extreme mucus issue as a positive to my body trying to fight off this horrible cold. I will still cringe and complain each time I sneeze and have to blow my nose for the 1,000th time though!
