For the second day in a row, I have to shower and get dressed in real (not sweats) clothes and leave the house. I used to do this every day without thinking. Now I think it sucks. Telecommuting is now in my DNA. Tomorrow, she says hopefully, it's back to normal.

I'm all scratched up waiting for reactions. Free wifi but clearly not high speed. More tortoise but the price is right and the phone I brought is not the one with the hotspot so I'm grateful.

Another day...another inhaler... No allergies

My lungs and I are reaching our limit. I'm getting tired of doctors and inhalers and tests and paying for it all. My lungs are just tired. And they can't take a nap and fix it.

Today's allergist/breathing guy says it's COPD for sure. I'm not allergic to anything. My lungs are working, in general, at about half (51%) - compared to other women who are my height and weight. The rescue inhaler I have been using (and got a new one of yesterday for $40) ups that ante to 63%.

So, he swapped that one for a new one (another $40). And he wants to see me in two weeks.

And he says not to ignore any even tiny sign of any illness (which, happily, I don't get). At the first sign, I'm supposed to go see someone even if it's a drugstore nurse. He said exercise would help and he's talking more than swimming but allowed as how on bad days it's going to be a bit difficult. (For me, on good days, it's going to be difficult since it fights my lazy dna.)

This guy is no optimist. He said it will take a lot of trial and error, probably, to get the right balance of drugs. Great. I love medial trial and error. Oh and his nurse was beyond annoying. Her manner was as if she was talking to a 12 year old OR someone with dementia. I held my tongue as best I could and wished dementia on her.

I'm just tired of all this. The woman who checked me in to the clinic this morning said 'you were just here, yesterday! too bad we don't have frequent points.'

Hahaha. Oh well. I'm done for at least two weeks so I can concentrate on CES and Las Vegas. And that's just what I'm going to do.

This new inhaler has no counter. It's to be used 'as needed' so no way to judge per day usage and make a good guess (my sincerest hope is that it's never or rarely 'needed'). So how do I know how much is left? I googled around but, most inhalers these days come with a counter so it's not a wide spread need. I found a counter for just this purpose on one website. $25. WTF? But, hey, that looks just like my knitting stitch counter that I have in the drawer! hehehehe Got the thing in some grab bag and have never used it... until now. It's PERFECT!

My Epic4G is going into total backup mode. If I never use it again, it will be too soon. I picked up a great deal from a friend on a used EVO to replace my broken one and I'm back in the EVO saddle again. Changing phones is still a PIA. Changing computers is way easier.
