Disturbing Trends in Medicine

What I'm about to go on about here is not eactly creative bloggery. I already understand that the Dear ________ format is tired. But I don't care. This is where I dump my observations in hissy fit format. It makes me feel better and hopefully I don't poke anyone's eye out in the process. But if I do, whoops by me. I hope you find an eye patch.

Dear Medical World,

Quit it with the baby turkey baster method of decongestant administration. Can't you people make an effective capsule or tablet? Nobody I know wants to stick something like this up their nose, spray something up there, pull the dispenser out and put a cap on it for later use! NOBODY. I don't care how effective it might be.

When I am congested, the last thing I want to do is put MORE runny stuff up in my sinuses so that I can play slow leak with my nose.

I've spent a good many years keeping things OUT of my nose. Everyone knows that kid on the block who put a peanut or green bean up their nose and had to be taken to the hospital. Not only that, but simply being alive in the 80s meant watching film after film about drugs going up one's nose and eating away part of one's face.

This product is about as appealing as tampons designed by Clive Barker.

*sniff* Oh zoomie! *wipes a tear*
That's priceless!

My Dad loves that thing! He has been snorting shit up his nose every single morning for the last 4 months - it's a new discovery for him. I can't stand it! It's so gross!

One morning, when I was stuffed up, he offered it to me. Noooooo wayyy!

LOL. :)
