Things are looking up!

Well, I have finally figured out why I've been so blah and out of touch this past month, hardly knitting and wheezing and just generally feeling bad and whining. I went to the doc on Friday asking for a nebulizer because my asthma was waking me up at night and I was not feeling good at all during the day. Turns out I am having an exacerbation. Which is a fancy way of saying a bad attack that won't clear up without heavy-duty medicine. And I also have bronchitis, which I seriously had no idea about - no fever, no anything. (I should have got the memo when I went for a walk and had to stop because I felt dizzy.)

So it's three days later and I am already feeling better. It's amazing how much bigger my lungs feel. Plus this tea called Breathe Deep has been a godsend. I mean really.

Best of all it explains why I've been feeling bad for so long. And I am on the upswing!

Nashville knitters: Don't forget the celebration for Betty's pattern in Summer IK at Threaded Bliss on Saturday the 17th from 3-5 pm! Be there or be a granny square!

(Just kidding, we LOVE granny squares at the I-Cord!)

Asthma sucks ass. Mine has been terrible for the last couple weeks but I'm glad I haven't needed a nebulizer treatment. Hope you're feeling great soon!

And I'll have to hunt down that tea to try. :)

Bronchitis! I'm glad you went to see the doctor, bronchitis doesn't go away without antibiotics and an inhaler when you have asthma. Plus, allergy season doesn't help. Only last week, I went for a walk and felt like there was an elephant on my chest. Then I started taking my meds, and lo and behold, I can breathe again.

Take good care of yourself, I'm so glad you got checked out!
