Is There a Doctor in the House?

I hate to post another entry with me complaining about something, but I gots nuthing else anyway. (Wait a minute; did I just bitch about my own bitching???)

When I was younger, I suffered from allergies to nearly everything that lived, died or deposited anything into the air. Now that I’m a bit older, I realize that I suffer from allergies to EVERYTHING that lives, dies or deposits anything into the air. It starts around mid-March and won’t stop until the first snow or thereafter. Hay fever, pollen, ragweed in the warmer months, mold, mildew and similar ick in the cooler months. It’s nearly year round.

I was deep in the throes today. On a typical day, I’ll sneeze now and again, suffer from intermittent nose running and eye watering. But, every third or fourth day, all bets are off. When I say sneezing; I mean sneeze attacks of 10 or 12 straight. When I say nose running; I mean pure liquid of water consistency gushing out of my nose, down my chin and onto anything nearby. (Pretty picture, eh?) When I say eye watering; I mean as if I were poked by an angry thumb. I become a total mess.

I’ve tried the Claritin and similar new allergy meds, but they don’t help. My only alternative is a standard, OTC antihistamine which, or course, knocks me out. My symptoms stop, but I become a zombie and sleep away my life. Either way, I’m in pure misery.

I’d go to an allergist, but I’ve never heard of anyone benefiting from one. And, since I don’t have prescription coverage, I’m very much against becoming a pharmaceutical guinea pig. Does anyone of you beautiful people know of a “natural” or “alternative” allergy med that acts like an antihistamine that doesn’t knock you out? If so, and you choose to share, I will make it my life’s goal to pleasure you in any and very way!!!



Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

I have an allergist and swear by flonase. Since it is a prescription get an over the counter nasal spray. They work wonders!!!

Thanks, Purry. I've never had the patience to finish a full course of nasal sprays. You've given me reason to try!

No, I'm not a doctor, but I'll play doctor with you There's an OTC steroid preperation much like flonase but the name escapes me right now. Ask the pharmacist, he/she will know. Or you can try something like Afrin but don't use it for more than 2 days in a row. I used to be the same way, had asthma, coughed and sneezed all the time but somehow I got over it, so glas I did. Sorry you didn't. Mac


docdirk replies on 4/12/2006 7:59 pm:
You can play doctor with me anytime!!!!

I'll check with a pharmacist about med you mentioned. It's only been a week or two since the freezing weather stopped, and I'm already hating it!

(BTW, and the cage is all ready for your re-conditioning)


docdirk replies on 4/12/2006 8:02 pm:
Why do you think I have all of these friggin allergies? The singing and dancing in the goddamn flower gardens you have growing outside the steel reinforced walls at your asylum... I mean Foundation!

Bring on your cage, baby, these bars can't hold me!!!

Try to find you a local beekeeper and buy some honey from him. It is a proven fact that if you eat honey made from your general area, it will help you develope an immunity to local pollins. May not help with all your trouble, but it will cut back on lots of them. Ah, my bill will be in the mail, same address right? Later

docdirk replies on 4/13/2006 5:56 pm:
Thanks KPB! I'd not heard of that before, but it does sound logical. Now, I just need to find a local bee keeper. I believe a few do exist. And yes, just send the bill to the same addy. I'll happily add it to the ever growing pile!

BTW, are you saying honey CAN'T be fun with solo sex?

Oh yeah, honey can be a lot of fun during sex too (no, not the kind by yourself, JJ), so find yourself a partner and bee healthy...eat your honey! lol

It's called ZYRTEC, unfortunaley it's a prescription drug. It works really well, my hubby takes it, he' like you, allergic to everything.

Wow, one little spelling error, and people have the audacity to scream at me in my own blog! Whatever happened to manners?

Oh boy do I know what your talking about! I wish I could help, but I don't take allergy medicine anymore because the treatment is worse than the cure! Hope you feel better!

Your sister with the sniffles,

Kiera


docdirk replies on 4/14/2006 5:21 pm:
Helluva choice to make, ain't it? I usually take the meds as a last, last resort. I hate that zombie feeling. But when sneezing won't stop...

You have my sympathies, sister!
