I like breathing, thanks.

No strep, no pneumonia, no flu. I just have a plain old regular cold. But it's kicking my ass so many ways I lost count. The doc at the patient first gave me an inhaler for the second cold in a row and I just tried it for the first time.

I never want to do that again, if possible. I am shaking and nervous and I don't feel like my lungs relaxed at all. After I breathed crappily into the breathy-tube for like the first time, he was like, "Are you SURE you don't have asthma???"

Anyways I didn't work today and I won't be working tomorrow, I have a note and everything. I guess that could be considered an up side but at the moment I'd rather be healthy and working.

EDIT: I am sincerely and thoroughly sorry to anyone I exposed this weekend. For those before I knew: humble sorries and for those after I knew: MASSIVE IDIOT sorries. I am stupid.

In that I have had bronchitis with an inhaler twice in a row recently. (to clarify, i.e. not saucy at all!)

I'm willing to concede that bronchitis is, in fact, un-saucy.

Ugh, inhaler! I'm sorry this is hitting you so hard. Rest up, feel better soon! Hey, I might be online tomorrow from home, all doped up on post-de-cystification pain meds. We can be not-at-work buddies. =)

I hope it's all done and gone and you feel better now!

For some people, the inhalers trigger breathing problems. It's why I'm an asthmatic without an inhaler -- they all make me worse. (When the "rescue" inhaler sends you from a minor asthma attack to a serious one, time to give up on it.) So you might want to talk to your doctor about it to let them know; that way they'll try to avoid doing that to you if possible.

I'm sorry you're under the weather. Feel better soon!

not-breathing sounds very unpleasant. Rest up and I hope you feel better soon!

*hugs* Hope you and your lungs feel better soon! And I hear ya on the inhalers - Fred practically vibrates after he uses his. The instant stimulant effect is jarring to me, I always feel much more tense after, though it does seem to improve my breathing - it's be awful to feel all the icky effects of it and not have it help the breathing.

Yeah. I am probably not going to fool with it again.

This would be why I always skip the doctor and just hang my head over a pot of steaming water covering my head with a well loved towel. There is still little to nothing a doctor can do for a cold.

No, I always end up with a bronchial infection so I have to sit through the visit so I can get the antibiotics. Every damn time, or I never get better.
