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.
Today I once again share where I am at and maybe how I may or may not be dealing with it.
I know I have slipped a bit as it has been 10 days since but I can honestly say it is because I have actually gotten busy, wrestled with the heat and got busy again.
Busy trying to organize my routine, of course with summer my wife is around more and it gives us time together, something which we do not always get during the school year – but it does seem to knock me off my routine, or at least the routine I try to have. So I have been going through lots of stuff and re-organizing just how and when I need to get things done.
Then the weather decided to bounce around with high temperature, high humidity and/or a combination of, all of which seem to bother my COPD/Asthma much more than I seemed to remember in the past.
The humidity is what really seems to get ‘Lenny’ (my COPD/Asthma) fired up and then I seemed to get really tired out really quickly – FRUSTRATING is the only way for me to describe it.
And busy some more as I get more into writing for the new local weekly newspaper (found on facebook under McPherson News and Information) and with the fall season fast approaching I find myself busy trying to whirlwind all the local sports previews together and that is fun, yet busy busy.
While I get so very frustrated when the weather slaps me down for a while to recuperate, at least I know if I can stay awake and keep the fingers moving I should still be writing aways, sharing my life, my news, my world with the world around me – I just need to re-organize and get into a steady, workable, productive routine while being aware of those triggers like heat and humidity that may knock everything out of its normal path of travel.
For now that is what I have and that my friends is where ‘Lenny’ (my COPD/Asthma) and me are at 4 today.
PRAYERS *** I continue a request for all to hold Kaycie Chapman (from down New Zealand way) in your thoughts, prayers and blessings as she continues her courageous Facebook sharing of her continuing battle with late stages of emphysema/asthma/COPD – and she continues to do it with the level of faith and hope for which we all should hope we will have when our battle and travels become much, much worse. Prayers and Blessings Kaycie.
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.
