Do you all have any tips/suggestions tricks for keeping up with your medication and inhaler regimen? Today was my first day of feeling like I was back to normal (besides a little bit of fatigue and pred-somnia) but sadly once I feel better, the militant dedication to getting everything taken on time (bid pulmicort neb, tid atrovent neb) started slipping. Embarrassingly before I got sick, even sometimes remembering twice daily Flovent was a struggle. I have a pill box organizer and have been really forcing/focusing on working it into my AM routine. My doctor suggested iPhone reminders, keeping an extra inhaler at work (ha! Insurance would have kittens).
Do you all have tricks/tips? I suppose too it’s part of my own growth and maturity of coming terms with a chronic illness and what it takes to stay healthy. “Keep it simple stupid! Take your meds!” A small daily investment to keep away the major decompensations and further lung damage & sensitization to more triggers? Maybe I’ll tape tootsie rolls to my inhalers and neb boxes as positive reinforcement?
Ah! Cool! Just got an all time best peak flow 470! (Take that asthma! 8 years of woodwind playing including sax and flute paid off!) Holy cow. Those low 300s really were like breathing through a straw. 😁 thanks for your time!
