When it comes to a random hay fever attack, those who suffer from the sniffles can concur that it usually happens at the worst time possible and once it gets started, it’s virtually impossible to stop – for local woman Louise Timms , it’s almost always 3am.
Resorting to the sniff and snort, which is certainly not a reasonable solution if you’re having an adult sleepover, the only other options are to keep blowing (the nose) or to wedge some makeshift nose plugs using pieces of tissue. The latter, a desperate last resort.
So frequently are these attacks, that Louise doesn’t even bother keeping a box of tissues on her bedside table, and instead keeps a handful of them wedged underneath her pillow, which she can then blindly grab in the middle of the night.
However, after making a shocking discovery one afternoon, Louise has decided it might be time to invest in some hankies or more antihistamines, instead of her DIY nose tampons.
Speaking to The Advocate, Louise says she was looking for a dropped tweezers under her bed one afternoon, when she spotted a graveyard of tissue pieces instead – prompting her to reevaluate her life a little bit, as it was pretty fucking gross.
“Yeah apparently you need to take antihistamines regularly for it to be effective.”
“Fuck me, they’re so expensive though.”
More to come.
