Yesterday a neighbor decided to burn masses plastic in his garden. This, as you can imagine, worsened my breathing. Even with the windows closed the acrid air seeped in through the walls. I can still taste it in the back of my throat. I am now taking a course of steroids. I hate the way … Continue reading Another Asthma Day
The cold winds are not kind to my lungs. Yesterday I had a mild asthma attack. I am shattered. The promise of seeing my best friend was the only thing that dragged me out of bed today. Earlier I sat down to try and do a bit of writing. After writing then deleting several sentences … Continue reading When Asthma Ruins Plans
I am once again on antibiotics for a chest infection and steroids for my asthma. This is my morning lot of medication. However, I have been able to work a fair bit on my novel. I've made a little rewards chart for wordcount goal I reach. For the first 2100 words, I get a little … Continue reading Writing Through The Asthma
Yesterday Morning Oh yes, I'm feeling much better. My Asthma's calmed down and I'm sure the side effects of steroids won't even affect me anymore. I'll be perfectly fine to go to Pride. Not even a big deal! This Morning Oh dear god I'm going to die! It turns out that having a weak throat from asthma … Continue reading Past Me Was A Dirty Liar!
Today has been a sleeping day. I had a mild asthma attack last night and like a good little patient, followed my asthma plan, and headed to the doctor's this morning. I've started my course of steroids which bring a whole lot of side effects added to the exhaustion of asthma. So yes I am … Continue reading Damn You Asthma!
Not a single word put on paper, or screen, up until this point. My brain is well and truly frazzled. I was sorely tempted not to write a post. However, this blog is meant to keep an honest account of my writing. Today I spent the morning playing a wonderful game of Arkham Horror with my … Continue reading Literally Nothing
The heady mix of pilates, therapy and steroids yesterday meant I was too exhausted, both physically and emotionally to write, or do much of anything else for that matter. Going to the dentist this morning did not improve matters. In the past I've been prescribed Diazepam for when I'm getting work done at the … Continue reading Nope, No Words
I finished the lovely little post for Crafty Sew & So's blog, to be published on Sunday. I'm feeling pretty drained today. My Asthma acted up last night, quite badly, and so today my throat and chest have been aching all day. Kick boxing, although fun, includes a lot of cardio which my lungs do not … Continue reading If only my body would work
Wrote a rough draft of Crafty Sew & So's blog which will be published on Sunday. I'm writing a fun little tutorial for Bunny Bunting. Now I'm going to bed because I went kick boxing tonight and my frail asthmatic body rejected any attempts at making myself fit. Word count: around 200 words
The days have been way too full recently. Story and Rhyme time this morning, afternoon at Crafty Sew & So, then Zumba in the evening. I only managed half of Zumba because my asthma acted up after half an hour. I did a very small amount of revising a set of instructions at Crafty, but … Continue reading Sleepy
