Wow, allergies.

At game night, got hit in the face with a frying pan full of phlegm. I've been having a lot of problems with breathing over the last six months. Nothing crippling, usually - uncomfortable maybe, and ordinarily when I think of "snorting my paycheck up my nose" I'd be thinking of cocaine, not dristan nose spray. And less and less stuff's working now.

I'm absolutely going to go to the allergy place across the street and get some injections or something. This is exhausting.

Anyway, I think I'm allergic to cats now. I never had this problem before, but the last several game nights, I've been having increasing oxygen-deprivation problems, but the last time, TOTAL CECESSATION OF INHALATION. Of course I can breath through my mouth, but toward the end of things, I couldn't really swallow without my ears popping in a scary way. Yeesh. It's never been quite that bad--thankfully, I wasn't getting a headache, but it was really exhausting. Sorry for being rude to people, but I've never had that specific problem before, and the cat allergy's a new thing, too :(

Sounds like an allergy to something, for sure. Could very well be the cats.

Do you neti pot? It might help some, if not.

I really don't think it'll help. Anything low-key like saline solutions, weak medications, things that flush out the sinuses, don't seem to help for more than an hour.

I'm in favor of that too :) I'll give their apartment one more shot, because it's easiest for the biggest number of people, this time with a bottle of nose stuff...

Life with corks rammed up your nose is uncomfortable, but not actually fatal...I suppose some exaggeration could have taken place...

*hugs* I'm a bit surprised Whines didn't draw that first sentence Wednesday. :)
