How can I convince my mom to see a doctor/convince her that I'm addicted to nasal spray?
it is extremely frustrating: I tell my mom I'm addicted to nasal spray, and in extreme harshness and disgust, she says "no you're not" rolls her eyes, and insists it is my cold symptoms dragging on... I've used nasal spray for more than 11 days, and last time, over two months. the bottle ITSELF says rebound congestion can occur if used more than 3-5 days, and to see a doctor is symptoms worsen. I cannot sleep without the stuff, and frankly, I find myself sometimes using it twice a day. she gets very snarky and rude when I insist I'm addicted. my stuffy nose is not going away anytime soon-and if I can't breathe-I imagine I'll have to be awake during oral surgery, not to mention, I cannot sleep without it. talking to her about it and getting her to accept it is like trying to penetrate water though a wall. help? I'm concerned and I need to take something else, and I'd like to see a doctor for recommendations: but she acted VERY harsh and raised her voice at me for that "I will not take you to the doctor for something so stupid". ugh. this is a problem every time I get a cold now... this is the second time... I would drive myself, but that's a complicated matter, and I don't have time for a job with school, so, it's difficult to do this myself.
