Asthma

Didn’t get enough sleep last night. i committed to helping my friend take dogs to the vet early this morning. Didn’t get myself in bed early enough. Got home falling apart in a state of an irritable, whiny, sick little girl Daddy fed me and tucked me back in bed. i was sound asleep almost before my head hit the pillow.

i woke up for a few minutes a couple hours in and felt that asthma exhaustion. i checked my peak flow and was down 60 pts. i was too tired to do anything about it. Right back to bed and passed out again. 4 hours later i woke up to the same exhaustion, coughing and a peak flow reading lower than the last. Albuterol will help for a little bit. 😦

my asthma is so bad and hard to control that i take 4 daily maintenance meds and end up on Prednisone a few times a year. Doctor has me on a set rule: If i use a rescue inhaler more than twice in one week, i have to see him to get me back under control. Here we go again. Monday i’ll be back on a Prednisone taper. Icky!

Back to bed with Ruffi and a movie til Daddy gets home with some OJ. In the meantime, i’ll try to keep my whining to a minimum…

      1. It quite likely did. My last asthma attack was triggered by smoke from the BBQ. The biggest reason my lungs are so bad is because my dad smoked in the house. I coughed, so he’d shut all the doors and windows trying to protect me. lol
        Environmental factors are huge.

        I’m in Sonoma County where we had the huge wild fires in 2017 & 2018. I was sick with varying degrees of asthma and lung issues for almost a year. I honestly didn’t think I’d get over that.

      2. It’s gorgeous! I’ve lived here for 19.5 years. Funny thing is, I’ve been chomping at the bit for about 5 years to get out of California… especially the wine country. lol Grass is always greener…

      3. I get it. California, I’ve heard, is simultaneously the richest state and the poorest state in the Union. You won’t be the first or the last to get out.

      4. I fall into the true middle class here. I live in one of the best neighborhoods in a home that is paid for….because my family bought years ago when prices were still attainable to the ordinary person. I count myself extremely fortunate. It’ll allow me to relocate into something much nicer than I could EVER have here. S (husband) and I are looking to move back east asap. I want to be out before this next fire season happens. It’s rocked me pretty hard! Don’t think it’ll be possible, time wise. I can hope, though!
