A Ton O' Bricks

Have I mentioned that I have asthma? Why would I? Boring subject huh? Sad fact is I do and, well, it has decided to hit me like a ton of bricks. If it does not ease on Monday, I will hafta go out to the base hospital and have a breathing treatment. Gee, like I do not have anything ELSE to do!! No fun...and I am just feeling cruddy and crappy and don't like myself much tonight! Have you ever just had one of those days? Weeks? Months? Milleniums? *sigh* I need to do a really good housecleaning and all the wrapping and put the laundry away (I *did* get it washed and dried today but that is as far as I got!). We need to bake and do the gingerbread house. I am supposed to go to a party this week and have absolutely no desire to be festive. At least for now...I hope this feeling will pass soon. I missed a really nice musical performance at church this morning, then missed lunch and a movie with Grace, Mom and my buddy TH. She took Mom out though so that was nice. Grace has been trying to be so good to me all day. She can be such a little Florence Nightengale. We watched "The Santa Clause" this afternoon and "The Polar Express" this evening. Good cuddle flicks! Still, I am just feeling awful. Just a "I am sick and sad and need to feel really sorry for myself" day. Don't know why but not being able to breathe makes me depressed. Wonder why? Hm, wait! I KNOW that answer! It is the answers to everything else I do not have! Why do I spend too much money during the holidays? It is NOT about money I know but there I go...Why do I think I need to do that? Then I hate myself for buying into the holiday hype. It is just depression feeding behaviors that continue to feed depression. Calling Dr. Phil...are you just stupid?? Get over yourself lady and DO something about it! Maybe it's "The peri menopause/menopause/lack of sleep/crappy diet/lonely for my husband/need a job/I spend too much money/ lack of air/dealing with a surly 20 something/neighborhood cookie exchange was canceled this year/too much to do in a short amount of time and I feel like a building just came down on top of me...brick by brick by brick...Blues!" Everybody sing...aw come on. You know the words! B.B. King made it famous didn't he? No? Okay, venting period is over. I will gather myself up by the seat of my shabby sweat pants and give myself a razor sharp talking to. See you tomorrow...hopefully I will be done whining and wheezing by then. You can only hope! If I have not run you away screaming hysterically by now, perhaps you will come by for another visit. I will put a kettle of tea on...

i know it's not funny, but you made me laugh! Poor you - yes, you should go get the breathing treatment! My best friend also has asthma, so i get the whole pain in the lung by not breathing. My old boss also has an intimate relationship with asthma...he has twin 2 YO, both of whom have it...there's a lot of brething treaments going on in his home, and WAY too many hospital trips!
Hope you feel better soon, sweetie!

Hope you feel better soon. It seems someone in everyone's family get ill around the holidays. You officially need to get better. Christmas Eve is less than 1 week-so I would go as soon as possible and get the breathing treatment. This is your friend speaking-can't say this is your mother speaking *smile*-you have a wonderful mother---but I bet your mom has told you to go to the doctor! Now listen to your mom and friend :)
Love,
Terri
P.S. Full report needed on progress

I echo the sentiments of the other comments - go get that breathing treatment! I'll be home in a few days to take care of you, but head this thing off as much as you can.

I love and miss you terribly!

Love,
Me

Ahhhhh ... Billy LOVES you ... just look at that comment he left for you ... and you can MOST definately tell he misses you as much as you miss him. Yes ... Sue ... go get the breathing treatment. You will feel much, much better once you have it. This time of year we really put alot of pressure on ourselves. So what if the cookies aren' baked, the presents aren't wrapped or the house is not clean??? We have our FAMILY and that is what is MOST important. I'm sending you a great big cyber hug and sweet Griffy kisses. Take care of yourself.

I have asthma! It is horrible and scary. Sorry to hear you are feeling down. Sounds like a lot is going on right now. We can all understand that. Don't feel bad about blogging it though, we are all a great sound board. Or perhaps long distance shoulders to lean on! Lean away my dear, this is a great way to get things off your chest.

Sounds like you'll get the TLC you need from Bill soon! You will feel much better when he is home with you! Feel free to e-mail me ANY time.

Oh do I so know how you feel....


And I can relate to the asthma because I have asthma too. It can be pretty rough when a flare up hits. I've had it since I was an infant. My 4 yr old has it too and it's been scary at time with him.

Feel better!!

You can vent ANY TIME you want. Just get feeling better. A breathing treatment is a good plan.
