Some days you're the windshield, some days you're the bug. Today I felt like the cracked windshield covered in bug goo! There was just no upside!
Sorry I've been MIA – October was a whirlwind of travel. I think that put extra stressors and triggers on my body creating a perfect storm for an asthma flare. Things had been pretty stable and going well…so I probably got a little lax on being diligent in meds and precautions.
My chest was not happy last week and I did contact my doc to check in. Unfortunately, he was out of the office and I got another doc who is uber conservative. Took the wait and see approach and was starting to feel better.
Today I went for a bike ride. It was immediately apparent that my chest was worse than I thought My lungs were burning and felt like a bear hug around my chest. After stopping several times to hack up a lung, I decided it was time to head back. I figured out the shortest, flattest way home. Now it's Netflix and nebs….and Prednisone
So today, asthma won. But it's only one battle and I won't let it win the war! Tomorrow is another day!
How do you regroup when asthma is winning? How do you reframe things to regain control?
