    I use the neti pot in the month of April. Ex husband uses it year round.

    If you get sinus eye pain, you will do anything...it works.
    You can do it!

    I've been on FoRT for several years now, and have enjoyed getting to know lots of new folks.

    Last year, I made a comment that prompted another FoRTer to send me a private message because of a shared incident regarding a sports team. After a couple of notes back and forth, we realized that we knew each other! We went to the same junior high school, although we didn't know each other then. Several years later, however, we met at an office where we both worked; we subsequently both went to work for another company (all of this was during the 70s and 80s).

    I'm accompanying my husband on a business trip this week, and knew we would be fairly close to where my friend now lives. So today we met for lunch, after not seeing each other for about 30 years. It was as though we just saw each other yesterday. It was wonderful fun.

    Thanks to the "powers that be" who run FoRT for helping us to renew an old friendship.

    Your overreaction and panic is not surprising. Do you, honestly, think we'd all recommend it and be doing this if that was what it felt like? Why would people describe it as soothing? What you describe is anything BUT soothing. It's not the forceful injection of cold water into your sinuses; it's the warm, gentle pouring flow of saline in one side, and it flows out the other side.

    But if you haven't done it before - people tend to think the worst . I understand that, I have used it for some time, I don't remember being real confident when I first used it though.

    I have to just past my mental hangups about it.

    I think it's wonderful you two met up!
    My favorite part of the Neti Pot is how it relieves my itchy eyes when I have allergies. It goes right up into the tear ducts and rinses everything out.
    We had our Parents' Night tonight at the middle school where I work. One mother was wearing a t-shirt with a fully naked lady sitting in a giant martini glass. I swear to God.
    Count your blessings!

    It was just as AZ said; even though we haven't seen one another for 30 years, it was just as though we'd only been apart for a day or so. It was amazing to reconnect with her after all these years. I even got to say hello to her husband on her phone.

    Can't wait till we do this again!
