Hayfever.

#1
Who the fuck invented that?

Probably some spaghetti monster who thought "Well, she hasn't checked on the tumble dryer or the cricket for an hour, I shall smite her".

What's the deal? I know Kleenex has shares in most of you for other reasons, but I don't think this is fair.

I've tried antihistamines (sp), they just dry me up and it means I have to blow my nose even harder (photos are available of my used tissues, don't bother sending me yours). to get the big bits out, and no I don't pick them out.

My neighbours say "Are you going to sort your garden our? Have you been crying?" Lazy bastards won't do the garden FOR me though. You just can't trust pensioners these days.

Maybe I shouldn't have moved to that Yorkshire.

Oh, and if anyone thinks they can troll all over this thread and take the piss out of me, good.

It's my thread, and I appreciate the pisstaking and slating, because I'm not as precious as some people.

When I used to get it, the only thing I found that worked was Beconase. You don't need a prescription but you need to ask for it at the pharmacy counter.

You spray it up your nose twice a day. Takes a few days to start working but after that, you'll have no trouble. It contains a steroid so some people get nose bleeds.

Edited to add ....

When you start getting on a bit, your nose is one of many things that stops running like it used to.

This hayfever means I go through several boxes of Kleenex a day.
I mean, what else is there to do but wank all day when you stuck indoors due to allergies?

There are different anti histamines with different actions: loretadine, citerozine hydrochloride, (scuse spellink) and others. As stated there are also nasal sprays.

I tried the fucking lot in huge doses and none really had an effect.

About 3 years ago I gave up smoking and started jogging and hey presto, although not asymptomatic, I don't suffer half as much as I did.

Hope this helps.

Vaseline smeared around the nostrils stops the snot and sneezing.

I used to have a Beconase inhaler, but I'm a civvy cunt now. Oh, should have I said ex Army or Veteran?

Why does it feel so shit though? I know there are plenty of people on here who'd like to put a skewer into my head, but at the moment, I'd do it my fucking self.

Give up smoking? Start jogging?

Here you go. This will stop the hayfever and cut down on the number of paperbags.


Just what you need.

I used to get kenalog injections and they were brilliant. I stopped because of the potential of osteoporosis in later years caused by the steroid.

My hay fever isn't anywhere near as bad as it used to be but then I take two cetirizine in the morning, one loratidine before bed and I've also resorted to a teaspoon of honey with my cornflakes.

Still not symptom free but my nose doesn't run constantly and I don't want to rip my own eyes out and throw them at the fucking flowers, so a decent result.

Kenalog injections stop hayfever. The NHS don't like giving them out because of health concerns, but if you get it badly, it's worth considering.

This lot will sort you out for £150 or so.

It's a steroid and can have other effects.

Yes, give up smoking and strengthen your respiratory system with some CV work.

I know it's horrible, I've always treated PT like an occupational hazard as a soldier, but it has some weird benefits apart from bounty/tour qualification.

I've just taken some parrots, a brufen and a Zirtek. Carry on amongst yourselves.

134 for 4 isn't too bad.

I wish I could watch it in real life.
