For years, I have had problems with breathing through my nose, and I've recently been to the doctor for it. As I took their medicine, it worked for a while until I ran out of one of the meds. Now, I'm right back where I was. I'm unable to sleep, eat, or even just enjoy my days off because I can't breathe. I'm stuck having to rely and carry nasal spray everywhere I go for the rest of my life, and there's nothing that could cure my bad sinuses. The doctor diagnosed me with allergic rhinitis, but I think it's more than that. Throughout the year, my sinuses stay swollen shut unless I use nasal spray. Saline never works for me, and I even try home remedies such as steam, salt water, and massaging pressure points. NOTHING WORKS! I even tried taking medicines, but they never open me up. My mother says I have to keep taking them, but I need to breathe NOW! Now, I'm praying for my mother to come home soon with the nasal spray because I can't eat and breathe at the same time. I'm starting to think that I don't have a nose anymore.. My throat and mouth are constantly drying out cause I'm relying on my mouth to breathe, and I'm starving cause I can't eat unless I had a nose to breathe through! It's just too hard trying to breathe and eat at the same time through your mouth when you're tying not to choke on your food. I'm desperate! This happens every time I don't have nasal spray within my reach. I feel like I'm either gonna suffocate or starve. My sinuses have been the torture of my body besides my overly sensitive hearing. Every morning, I wake up struggling to breathe because my nostrils stay swollen shut without nasal spray. Blowing my nose doesn't help, and trying to drain my sinuses with a solution just makes them swell shut more! I don't think I can keep living like this! My mother refuses to take me back to the doctor because she expects the regular medicines to work, but they aren't opening me up! They're supposed to keep me open, but without nasal spray, I close right back up! I don't need medicines; I need a miracle. Nasal spray is the best I can get. Idk if we even have the money, but maybe I should suggest surgery. I feel like a dying fish lying here with my mouth hanging open.
