Happy Late Turkey Day

Today is my 3 day on the inhalers. My first day was horrible. I got an headache, I was shaky. I was at work. I was having a bad day. Never mind it was busy and you know what.

After I had lunch around 2:30p, I became so short of breathe, my core muscles had tighten up and I freaked out. I never felt anything like this before. I almost went to the ER.  I used my rescue inhaler, about 30-40 minutes later I started to feel better. I never left the desk. I was under water with orders from all the doctors writing!! I was so sore after that episode.  I had never experience anything like that before. I do not want to ever do that again. I wasn’t doing stuff like that until I took the meds.  But I haven’t given up. Today is better. No headache, not so shaky.

Today I do my 5k Turkey Trot virtual event. I will update later how it goes. This will be my first run, since I have started these meds. Amanda you are right I am going to be going on the med. sites and seeing if I can get a discount, or sponsorship they are taking a huge chunk out of my pocket!!

    Your body will adjust to the meds after a bit (typically). I’m sure your doctor told you this already, but the #1 thing you can do to help your breathing is to lose weight. That was one of my motivating factors a few years back in losing weight. My breathing was horrible at that time and there is no way I could have even walked a couple of miles, let alone run… It’ll also lighten the need for rescue meds as the lungs handle the workload easier. Yeah, I know, I’m captain obvious. 🙂

    Ya, I know. But It was so horrible. I wasn’t gonna keep taking them. But I have. I have had a sudden drop in weight too. My doctor thinks I will be able to drop the rest of what I want to get rid off.
    I have also learned that I have scare tissue. And a cough I never had before. So the scare tissue my doctor wants to keep an eye on and make sure I am not causing more. That’s why it is COPD.

    It only gets better from here. You handled this attack and you’ll get through anything else that gets thrown at you. Remember stress is not going to make this easier. I know it’s impossible to get rid of all your stress, but try to work on reducing stress as much as you can. I think things are going to start getting better for you now that you know what you’re dealing with and you can work to make it better.
