Well Fug!

So I just went out to get the trash can and recycle bin to the back of the house.

I figured I should be good to go and do that.


I got down the sidewalk had to stop for a few. Walked over to the bins and uprighted them. Stop for a few seconds. Wheel the bin to the back gate and into the back yard. Chest got tighter while I was at the gate because of...

Apparently the neighbors have been out and someone overdid it with the perfume. Made it into the back yard and thought;

"I didn't check to see if the back door was unlocked, it it is locked I'm likely to have a hissy fit right here in the backyard..."

Sure enough, the door was locked. By this time I was nearly panting, there is no air for me here. You have no idea what a panic inducing moment something like this is until you experience it. I sat down in the chair on the patio so I could get a fucking grip. Pulled out my inhaler and did three pulls on it, and sat there for a few more moments until I could feel myself calming down a bit. Walked back around to the front door.

I couldn't wait to get on the O2 once it was in reach.

I don't want to think that this is my lot now. Every time I go to do something I need to have a bottle tag along too? Something is either wrong, or REALLY wrong.

I really need to find out what the fuck?! Going to call the doctors office in the AM

Oh, dear! No, this doesn't seem good or normal at all, definitely call the doc. Maybe the new meds are the wrong meds?

Sending good thoughts.

I have good and bad days, but since the meds and regimen changes I have more like this than not.

Oh my, I can't imagine. You're right.
Damn. I haven't known you long enough to get the full picture but I sure hope you can find some relief soon. This sounds awful.

We'll see.

But yeah, it is bordering on the ridiculous.

This is bad. I wonder if a move to a less-stressful climate is in store?

A less stressful climate? Cannot imagine... Such a thing.

Well dang. Getting the bins in and you just don't seem a good fit. I hope your doctor has some answers! And I wish people wouldn't use perfume!
Jun. 22nd, 2017 01:42 pm (UTC)
Yeah, whatever that was was certainly no help. I don't mind a little parfum, but please, don't bathe in it.

Perfumes are mostly artificial these days, and many people are allergic to them. Our bodies go, 'Poison alert!'.

Also, I read your earlier post and changing your meds did not work out! I wish they wouldn't mess with meds. {{{Sigh}}}

I also hope your issues have been sorted out. Like, you're back on your old meds which worked much better.

I'm sorry things are so rough for you. Hope the docs can help a little!

You and me both. That was my thinking in going to a specialist.

You need a good pulmonologist ASAP. You should not be going thru that!

Thought I already had one. Put a call into them yesterday. If I don't hear anything by this afternoon, I'll be calling them back. And maybe looking for a new doctor as well.

But it is COPD and that is not good.

This sounds so scary :/

Yeah well it ain't much fun.
