Sherry - Perhaps I am a stubborn person as well. I have been told so many times that I need to take an allergy pill daily and I just ignore the advice. It would probably help me quite a bit since my sinuses are always so congested but honestly, I am too cheap and broke to buy claritin or allegra. Sad, huh? I'd rather be stuffed up and miserable than spend $20. It would be fine if it were $20 once but every month?? I already spend so much on medication. Even with insurance, I think I've spent $1000 this year. :( Maybe I will buy a pack and give it a try, if it really helps, the $20 won't seem like such a loss.
I eat raw honey and I haven't noticed it helping my symptoms. Perhaps I will try some in my tea tonight and I will let you know if I see any improvement. Have you ever tried to get her to use a netti pot? Everyone tells me those can really help. It looks uncomfortable to me.
oh and raw honey tastes REALLY good! Your SIL lied!
