MY NOSE KNOWS... AND MY BODY IS TRYING TO TELL ME SOMETHING....

I'm on a rant today. It would be a nose spray rant ! I use 4 Way Saline Spray with natural eucalyptus & menthol. I stock up when I can find it. Well, my pharmacy ran out and they called today to order for me.. Sorry ma'am, This product is discontinued.  WHAT!
I need this spray. I can't use regular nose spray. I was once addicted to Afrin Nose Spray. Yes, nose spray is addicting. I can only use this kind.
 
Of course, it can by bought on Evil bay or Amazon. Ebay price is over $51.00 for 1 ounce bottle.  But get this.... Amazon has it for $189.00 for 1 ounce bottle!  geezzzzz!  Robbery!!! This is the only thing that unstops my nose. Regular saline just keeps it moist. I need something to unclog my nose. I'm all for change, but if something works, why discontinue it? All I can find is the regular saline that does not unstop my nose. If anyone has information on any saline with some menthol in it, please point me in the right direction, please...   Next topic, can anyone guess?


 
 The Menopausal Dwarfs have came for a visit this time and they have decided to bunker down for a while I think.... I've had the symptoms for years.. but now, they have came to stay. How long does this last?  The Hot Flashes are bad enough!

 This would be my nights... except, no snow. How I wish for snow! I have the air conditioner turned to 68, ceiling fans going and I have a little fan on my nightstand that blowing on me. I went to the doctor this morning.. Guess what? My doctor had have baby last night at midnight. I had to make another appointment for next week.
I'm about to take the matches away from my inner child!!  lol I guess my body is trying to tell me something and it is more than being HOTT! It is getting older! Tired, not sleeping good, being hot, and I was wondering why I forget a lot of stuff that I'm to remember. Simple things to remember.. I just forget if I don't write it down. I have never had to write things down.  I will leave you with this cute cartoon.

 
My battery is about dead on the laptop.. What else will go wrong?  lol Take care of yourselves and stay COLD!!!  I Will!!!

Love this post!!! I remember giving my mom a card for her birthday years ago ~ something about a superhero for women her age ~ the "Hotflash"!! I can still picture the character with baggy tights, a cape and a lightning flash across the fron of the body!!

Oh ~ and I hope you find a good substitute for your spray. Have you ever thought of seeing if there would be a way to make a homemade version?

I was put into menopause with chemotherapy: wear cotton and layers so you can strip off quick. Water with a few drops of peppermint essential oil can help. Just dab it on when you feel a flush. Regular exercise helps the body to balance the hormones...walking so you are slightly out of breath regularly really does make a difference. Also, healthy diet helps maintain your blood sugar level which can help the mood swings. Re the nasal spray, why not use the saline and just put a few drops of eucolyptus essential oil on a hanky and snif after you spray. Pretty much the same thing...dont add the oil as essential oils can be quite damaging if used wrong (can you tell I was an aromotherapist lol). Hope you feel better soon. Once you are out the other side of menopause you will feel great..I love it. 43 and not ruled by cycles! Yay!!!

Sorry about your nasal spray. You might try visiting the manufacturers website and sending them an email.
Every one of those dwarfs lives at my house too! UGH! I too am wondering how long this is going to last.
