marydell: My hand holding a medusa head sculpture (by me) that's missing its snakes (zombatar)
[personal profile] marydell
I can't find my peak flow meter and the mold spore count around here is like eleventy-zillion, and I've been coughing since last night.  Since I have coughing-variant asthma instead of normal-variant wheezing asthma, it's hard to be sure when I'm having an asthma attack, since coughing can mean all kinds of things.  If I had my peak flow meter, I would know which medicine to take and how often, instead of just going eeny-meeny-miny-mo over my two inhaler options and guessing.  If I had enough wind I could go pull out all the containers by my desk and see where I put the fracking thing.  It's not terrible--even when I'm doing badly I blow above 300 on the meter--but it's damned annoying.  Cough cough. Whine.

Um. I'm not gonna give you asthma girl assvice, but I am going to tell you what Puppy would say to me in this situation, which is "If you don't have the airpower to open your darn containers to find it, maybe you should phone your doctor."

Assvise is welcome, and Puppy is right. However, I should clarify--I can safely open containers in my current state, but not safely process the dust I would kick up in the process. The old PFM is most likely in whichever box I put my prior purse in, a couple of months ago, which means going through everything in the basement to find it, which would be unwise.

Anyway, I went and bought a new one and I'm clocking 350 to 400, so am safely in my yellow zone, and am taking albuterol every 4 hours. I am going to have to switch my diet around a whole lot, though, so as to be religious about dairy avoidance, at least when spores and pollen are high. BIG FROWNY FACE. *wants cheese*
