Help! I have been trapped inside of this apartment since Thursday night. That is when I got back from the Emergency Room. I had a terrible asthma attack. Not only did I have trouble breathing, but it felt like a fifty-pound weight was pressing on my chest. The doctor ordered the usual EKG to make sure I wasn't having a heart attack (which I knew I wasn't, I always feel a tremendous weight on my chest when I get these attacks), and after the EKG I had a nebulizer treatment. After that I had to stay for awhile for stabilization and observation.
When it was time to go I was still in a lot of pain. In the past the breathing treatment has usually taken away the pain. "I want you to stay home and rest till Monday night," the doctor said. Yikes, I thought, this is Thursday night. "Take four puffs of your inaler instead of two, every four hours. And put moist heat on your chest at least four times a day for half an hour at a time." Then he sent me on my way.
Well I thought I would enjoy the time off. But boy has it been boring. I have had other symptoms, so I have laid in bed a lot, but one can only do that so much. My computer is even starting to bore me!
Well here it is Tuesday and I can officially go out now, but as luck would have it, I can't go anwhere in the car. I am having car troubles. They can't fit me in until tomorrow afternoon. I can't walk anywhere because I think it is the hot, hazy humidity that gave me this attack in the first place. I am going to have to stay in air conditioned places all summer. No spending time outdoors for me. But at least after the car gets fixed I can look at different walls than these apartment walls! I think Wal-Mart would look pretty good about right now...
