Heloow Every BODeeee,
Just thought I would try to simplify things and put everything in one place...I cant believe how many of you mean so much to me. Each day, I come here and read what is going on. It is like taking a walk in the town square I suppose, overhearing conversations, reading the local paper and keeping up on all the news, but more so. So much more. Having tea with you and complaining about little things so the big things don't seems so big.
I went to my asthma doc today. I take my husband with me, he is my medical advocate. Other than getting into great detail, I will say, he has always been a great doc. Listens, asks good questions and ingeneral I don't feel I am about to be rushed out the door. He uncovered several things, more perspective than anything else and I came home relieved and reassured.
One of the things that happened, was, the appointment was for 8:30, so by the time nurse was asking me questions and he showed up, I was pretty dizzy from morning dose. I layed down and rested in the dark room after a inhaler to recheck airflow and was a new person 15 minutes later when he returned...hub noticed change too...AHH, got it. got some one to see me as I flip through these effects. You may have seen me, as I try to answer here on the board or chat and the fatigue, dizzy and confusion sets in. and I have to leave. I see it as I type. It is one of the reasons I do this. It is a way to concretely compare what is going on. To challenge me and say do this one thing.
I am off to eat, have a nap and rearrange my nest.
Thank you again for all your support...today has been, other than some braindead and dizziness, a nice day, continuing. I will take this over despair any time.
