Hero Of My Day


The chemical you are currently viewing is my hero of the day. It is fluticasone proprionate. It stops runny noses, sneezing, itching, and watery eyes and is saving my sanity, the cartilage and skin at the end of my shnoz (is that really how you spell it?), and the soft palate at the back of my throat. Pretty amazing for one little chemical compound, don't you think! Just one beautiful, uneventful breath after another. The person(s) who came up with this lovely combination deserves a plate of cookies, a bunch of polleny flowers (just for symbolism), a Nobel prize (for the newly refound peace in my life!) and the $1,000,000 that comes with it. He/she/they certainly have my vote. Twice if I can swing it.

:) what is the market name of the compound you are taking?

trublu-
I'm using a generic form of Flonase. I think Flovent is also a related product. My nose loves it, though. The instructions say it may take up to 3 weeks to see results. My results are immediate. I love this stuff.

Hope it keeps working for you. It stopped working for me after awhile.

Your garden is looking great - maybe things will be ready for us to enjoy when we visit in a few weeks:). I think Keith is rubbing off on me because that's something he would say...
