Being willing to share with others the path I am traveling while battling ‘Lenny’ (name I have given my COPD/Asthma) is almost like therapy for me while also giving me the responsibility of taking my battle seriously.
With the help of social media I know I can also reach out to others who are also fighting similar battles and hopefully at time supply a little insight, little knowledge and maybe stir up some questions.
So today I share where I am at and maybe how I may or may not be dealing with it.
- – This start of Medicare is something else as I found with a visit to my physician. To get me rolling properly on Medicare he had pages of questions we had to go through plus set me up for a sonogram of my heart. But now that the initial Medicare visit is over, maybe things will run smoothly.
- – I do not like high humidity or should I say my COPD/Asthma does not like high humidity at all. Last two mornings I woke up to humidity of 95-100% and even after spending my morning routine of 15 minutes on the nebulizer machine I still was breathing only half ass. This in turn put a real damper on my day as I felt very fatigued throughout the day.
- – Setting goals is always good and my newest goal is to spend more time and be more active on many of the COPD/Asthma related facebook groups I have joined. Need to relate with more of those who battle the same battle I do on a daily basis and be willing to help or be helped.
- – Though I do not leave an actual comment on the many I keep in prayers and blessings on a daily basis, please know I throw a bungalow size quilt of thoughts, prayers and blessings every day for all those who battle this battle.
- – Along those thoughts I do want to express my constant concerns, prayers and blessings for Kaycie Chapman down yonder in New Zealand as she shares her strong battle with us with such strength. May we all keep her in our daily prayers.
And that my friends is where ‘Lenny’ (my COPD/Asthma) and Me are at 4 today.
NOTE TO REMEMBER: Sometimes we share what may seem like medical information, but we are only giving descriptions and highlights of various aspects of having COPD and/or asthma and no way do we ever want our information to be considered medical treatment type of information, always consult your physician for more, clearer and more medical founded information.
As always – if you or anyone you know have any symptoms involving lung and breathing functionality, and they linger over and over while disrupting a lifestyle – then please ask questions and get it checked out.
Remember – a person without breathing is a person without life itself.
I bid to all – smiles, prayers, blessings and steady breathing – Mr. William.
