Still sick unfortunately....
I feel like I'm getting worse. My voice is gone, and I couldn't sleep last night because I kept coughing.
And then Kevin called at 11am and I could barely talk. I was so happy to hear his voice. And then I went into an asthma attack with him on the phone. I feel like such an idiot. I think it freaked him out...because I couldn't breath...and I couldn't talk. And I was crying. Not a good mix. Finally I ran in the bathroom and turned on the hot water to inhale steam. It worked enough that I could stop panicking long enough to get the nebulizer and do a breathing treatment. Cold showers work too, but I'm not a big fan of cold wet clothing. Kevin is worried...I should have just told him I had to go, but I was panicking because I couldn't breath! Don't know about anyone else but I kind of tend to freak out when I'm alone and smothering.
I'm a little better now. I can breath, so that's a plus. I drank a coke. I'm all shakey from the breathing treatment and the caffiene in the coke. It's better to breath and be shakey than smother though.
Maybe I'll call the doctor and get her to perscribe me an Epepin injection just in case something like this happens again....We're so far from the hospital that if the breathing treatment didn't work, I probably would have died before they could even get someone here to help me.
Thank you, God.
