Ain't Easy Being Wheezy Version 2.0

Hi ladies!

God! How I miss blogging! I miss reading blogs of my readers. Yeah! I read your blog sissies! And unfortunately I was stuck in bed busy catching my breath. Yes, Asthma had me again. And this time it was worst.

This was happening last week and you know how abnormal the weather right now. It's so sunny and we are all sweating and in a snap we are all like "It's raining? Srsly?" Sudden change of weather triggers my asthma. I have to be in a same room temperature one at a time. And that day, I went to BDO Main branch at Ortigas for some reasons. I was dead tired and it was raining so hard when I got home and the last thing I knew before I sleep was I'm having the attacks again.

I did what usually I know in preventing my asthma to get worse. Hay! Thanks for my course kahit papano nagagamit ko siya. I puffed my inhaler two times and I wait for any therapeutic effects. After an hour, wala pa din nangyayari. I turned on the nebulizer, and started my first nebule. Nagpapanick na ko this time. This is not usual. Dati after a 1-2 puff okay na ko. Ngayon wala ng effects. I had a nervous feeling that something is wrong with me. That this is not the usual asthma I had. It feels like something was stuck in my throat and it feels like my airway is closing. I self-medicate myself with the nebules even though I know it's not working and the only thing I feel was the side effects of it which is headache, nausea and palpitations. I observed myself for one day. Ganyan ako hindi ako magpapatakbo sa hospital hangga't kaya ko. I know how it feels to be confined.

Curious how many nebules I consumed?

Yes. 10 nebules in 24 hours. I know this is so wrong. (Rated PG: Wag Tularan.) But can you blame me. I was so nervous. I can't hardly breathe. I thought I was gonna die any moment. OA ko lang. Hehe.

To cut the long story short, I was rushed to hospital because my Papa found me crying and holding my chest. I literally can't breathe. When I was at the ER, I had a 250 mg of Hydrocortisone or Steroids. The drop dead gorgeous doctor observed me for 6 hours. Yes! Drop dead. Haha. I was having a shortness of breath and here I am fantasizing the doctor in front of me. Imagine that. Ang landi lungsss. Pero seriously he's so handsome. Hi Dr. Benjamin Ong!

I have a take home meds to take for 7 days and this is so new to me. It is the Symbicort Turbuhaler in Powder form. This is how it looks like..

The first time I read the label I was like, "Powder form?! How I'll gonna inhale this?!" But thanks to YouTube, there are lots of tutorials there and I ended up trying. And it feels so weird inhaling it.

It has a dosage meter and it turns red if its empty. How I wish my inhaler also has this one.
New medication. New routines to follow. It's really hard to have an Asthma. I just learned to accept it. At least I have an Asthma but asthma doesn't have me! Please wish me well :) If you have any questions regarding this meds just comment down below and I'll be happy to answer it all.
