Hayfever….

By Thumper 13 November 2008 65

I don’t know about anyone else but I don’t suffer form hayfever. I never have, and I believed quite rightly that I would never ever.

Having said that, for some reason I have been stricken with hayfever for the last month and it’s really knocking me about due to lack of sleep, red sore eyes and general unwellness.

And so little Rioters, how many others are suffering form hayfever? Is this year particularly bad for some reason, and if so, why?

Were the rains we received in spring responsible for the growth of some weed that finds it way up your snoz?

Discuss. I shall read through red sore eyes 😉

Disclaimer, I still love spring. Such a stunning time of the year in canberra.

What’s Your opinion?

But it’s not an either/or situation. There’s no reason why you can’t take comments made on an internet forum into account as well as talking to a pharmacist or whatever. Most of the time the pharmacist asks you what you want anyway.

Hehehe!

Seriously though, there’s nothing like self-medicating, is there?
I’d certainly take advice given on some online forum over that of a medical professional.

If you don’t like it, why not take a tab of ‘get the fcuk out’? I don’t remember anybody asking for your opinion of “what’s a legitimate complaint and what is sissy whining”.

Same could be said of you, Mr Jones.

I know you are, you said you are, but what am I?

When I first moved inland (as an adult anyway) from the coast, the hayfever was, to put it simply, debilitating.
Then I was put onto Beconase by a doctor, after failing to make progress with allergists, etc.

As Dan and DAG said, it turns you around. Take whatever symptomatic treatments help you, but keep going with the Beconase (now available over the counter) for 3 or 4 months.

Eventually it helped me totally desensitise, and I no longer have it at all. Took a couple of seasons though.
