In this era of shortness of breath can mean dire consequences

Having an attack of allergy induced asthma, scared the living crap out of me this morning.

So yeah, asthma with a heavy dose of anxiety. So, yeah. So much fun😬

1. And the anxiety only makes it worse

Be sure to take your time doing everything and take it slow.

2. I'm outside mowing in one of the heaviest pollen years in history.

Had asthma as a kid. I can feel it.

3. Yes, I can imagine.

The things we just took in stride BC are thought of quite differently now. Take care of yourself, friend.

4. I Can See Why

Early this week, I had a bit of a runny nose. Of course, my first thought was "Uh oh."
But, temp never went up and I otherwise felt fine.
Occurred to me a couple days later (duh) that the trees & plants are filling the air with stuff I haven't inhaled for 5 months!
But, it did get me to immediately go to the worst case!

6. Thursday morning the framing contractor on our job was extremely congested

To the point his allergist sent him to the ER where he got a shot (not sure what) and medication. It was just allergies - the pollen is fierce right now - but his lungs were very affected.

It scared him, of course. He had to take the entire day off, but his crew was still working.
