Woke up this morning and went into an asthma flair, which has aggravated my back pain
by ten fold, My asthma doc I was seeing moved outta this state and well have to wait til next week
to see the new doc. Had bloodwork done on Tuesday and arm still hurts from that, bloodwork
every two months you'd think I'd be used to it by now..
But this mornings asthma flair has my back in way so much pain and I'm so very tired, having a
hard time getting any housework done and it still hurts some to breathe in air..Please make
this go away..
Thank you for letting me go on and on, Hope y'all are having a better day than me..
Good luck on that trip Pete, May the lure (force) be with you, hehe ouch don't make me laugh...

Char,
You already know I'm going through a challenging time, but you always are so kind to everyone, no matter what, so I want to at least take a minutes to wish you soft hugz, as you always send us.

As a matter of fact, extra gentle hugs to you! Sorry my response is so brief right now.

(((((((((Char)))))))))) Sorry you're having such a rough day! I wish there was something more I could do to help, you always help me to feel better when I'm having a bad day! Don't worry about the housework today, it can wait a day, until you are feeling better. Or better yet, get that daughter of yours to give you a hand today! Take it easy if you can. Sending you lots of hugs.

Char, Is your asthma allergy related? Did you know when we have elevated histamine levels we have much more pain because histamine cells have "pain memory". So increase in histamine cells .....increase in pain.....rx....allergy meds have been found to help.

My Dr. put me on allergy med every 6 hours to combat this from being so severe.

Our bodies are so strange.... Ever notice increased pain spring and fall.......allergy season at its worst.

Prayers to all, Andrea

I saw my Asthma Doctor today and he put me back on Singulair, Hopefully this will help with my allergies
as it's effecting my breathing, my peak flows have been down 310 in the doctors office and I'm usually 400,
I just hope I don't have to get put on steroids, I can only tolerate Prednisone...
anyways Soft Hugz to everyone...I'm going take the day off tomorrow, so see ya back on Friday.....

Aw, Char, I hope the new meds help & you don't have to be put on steroids! I just got off prednisone. I was only on it a month, but it was just awful! I have come to the conclusion that steroids are "evil." smhair
Enjoy your day off tomorrow!
