Well I am yet another asthma suffer. I had a really bad attack today while driving on the highway during rush hour. I had my daughter with me too, who is autistic, yet another battle I had to face, while I fought to breathe . All I could think of is PLEASE GOD help me get better and do not let her know Mommy is sick. It hit me like a blow to the head, the weather has been crazy here too going from 40's to high 60's. Wow, everyone else is so happy the weather is nice, but nope I get the worst of it all. It just sent me into an instant attack. I felt dizzy and felt like I was going to black out. So, it was then that I pulled over to the side of the road and gain air back. I didn't know if this was the one, that was going to send me to the ER or if I was going to make it back home safely. Luckily, I called a friend to pray for me and prayed to God and we made it through AMEN. The scariest thing ever and now I am so down. It was only about two weeks ago, I got pnuemonia and the doctor had me on 40mg of prednisone and 400mg of Avelox, which made me itch all over my whole body and eat like I was pregnant.
I am getting really upset, with this illness and want out of NJ so badly, but I do not see that happening until the next few years, if I even make it that long, so I pray. I know I do not like being hooked up to my nebulizer 4 times a day, just to be normal. So, sick of suffering, I want to be free, I want to be normal, I want to BREATHE, wow, is that too much to ask LOL. I want to live and breathe at the same time, not something I can do very often. I already on advair 500/50,singular, nexium 40mg, rescue inhailer, and my machine when needed, which has been a lot lately. I have to conserve my air if I want to talk and if I want to breathe I cannot talk, atleast for today when these bad attacks hit me. I guess I should stop complaining, I am alive tonight. I am sorry guys, i just really need people to talk to, who understands. My husband and his family have no idea what I go through and i just feel very alone many days. I am glad I am not alone here. Hope to get to know you all a lot better.
