MyPurMist ...

A couple of nights ago I saw a commercial for a product called MyPurMist. I barely had a chance to listen to what they were talking about when I blurted out to Rick, "I need this! Go to Target tomorrow on your lunch break and buy it for me." I've battled sinus problems all my life. Whenever I catch a cold, it goes right into my sinuses and I stay sick for weeks, sometimes even months. Just last week I was thinking about buying some sort of humidifier to see if it would help. Then I saw the commercial for this product.

Rick bought me the inhaler like I asked. When he brought it home and I saw the receipt, I was in shock! I had no idea it cost so much. I figured it was one of those cheap "As Seen On TV" gimmicks. I didn't think it would cost much. Had I known, I wouldn't have asked him to get it. Had he told me the price before he bought it, I would have told him no. Rick knows me, so he bought it anyway. I figured if he spent that much money, I better use the darn thing!

I caught a cold back in January, and believe it or not, but I haven't felt right since. I'm okay during the day—aside from headaches—but at night the sinus congestion and pressure is almost unbearable.  I have the Ocean brand saline, which isn't addictive like other nasal sprays, but that has never helped much. My doctor always recommends a neti pot, but that makes my sinuses sting really bad. When something actually hurts to use, you're not inclined to use it. Sudafed helps me breathe at night, but it also makes me feel wide awake, so it isn't a good combination. I decided to give this MyPurMist thing a try, and so far, it seems to be working. I've used it for three days now, and I haven't had to get up in the middle of the night to take Sudafed. I've been able to breathe without any problem at all. Just maybe it is actually worth the money he spent on it!

  1. I'm glad you've found something that works for you! Organic apple cider vinegar is my go-to for sinus help. Not big on the taste but I put it in cranberry juice to somewhat hide the taste. Hope you feel better soon. :)
