My hay fever and dust mite allergies are so bad that I have to let my nose drip into a box of tissues while sneezing my head off and my eyes water so much I look as if Im crying. .I asked my doctors for three years!! to allow me to be de-sensitised. He refused on the grounds that they didn't believe in de sensitising practices. I changed Drs and after 1 year with this DR and turning up box in hand dripping sneezing and eyes watering. I was finally put on the very long waiting list; nearly 1 year. I finally got my appointment and was then kept waiting for 4 hours!!!!I before given blood tests. When I returned to see the specialist 6 weeks later (only had to wait 2 hours this time), the specialist refused me desensitisation on the grounds that on the day of my appointment I was strangely well. The medicines that the specialist prescribed do not work and Im back to dripping and sneezing. I am 64 year old but I am otherwise fit Margaret Normington
