Lung Capacity

Or lack thereof showed its ugly face today.

The team went on a tour of the various Support facilities at our location. I fell behind crossing the street. No air.

Fell further behind when I had to stop to take blasts off my inhaler. Thank the gods I still carry one. I really don’t think it would have been as bad had I not been carrying the extra weight I gained again.

*sigh* Be glad when I get insurance again.

Scared the crap out of a few people. Including the instructor. Hope that doesn’t cost me the job. I fell behind on the way back to class too. I knew I would. Waved them on. Explained to the class once I finally made it back what was going on. A few were worried. Or so I heard over lunch.

Should have told her up front… Honestly, I didn’t even think about it. Crap.

As I said before, I could be the poster child for reasons NOT to smoke tobacco.

Don't worry about it. I doubt very seriously they'd let you go for breathing problems.

That's a bad experience. Since it's health, you be protected by ADA? Don't worry about it, put the day behind you and just keep bringing your A game.

I'm not going to worry about it too much. No point. Onward. Upward.

I agree with Symian. It's your brains they want. Darn work training! I hope you can get health insurance again, too.

Oh I'll get insurance either through work, or affordable care act (Obamacare). Can't afford it right now. And not eligible through the job until 91 days in.

Thanks, man. I knew what was happening at the time. I just hadn't told anyone up front.

Maybe I should have. But that water? Under the bridge.

Nah, you shouldn't have told anybody. Just get the job!
