Fresh air does not smell of fragrance

Frisk luft lukter ikke av parfyme.

To the emergency room with asthma attack

Leave a comment

Now it is 02.25 at night and I have just gotten home from the emergency room at the hospital. I got medicine from the inhaling machine.

I had a tight chest and when I arrived the nurse did not seem to believe me. She said it does not sound like an asthma cough. Well, it is I said, my asthma sounds like that.

She took the CRP like they always do to check if I got an infection going on. CRP showed zero, nothing. The doctor on watch listened to my lungs and asked me to take deep breaths. I do breathe as deep as I can, I said. He looked a little strangely at me. Wonder what he thought? I do not know, he did not say anything. He went out the room and told the nurse it is asthma, and then told her what to give me.

I was placed on the bed. Been here, done this many times now. The nurse filled the container on the machine with liquid medicine and started the machine. I got a mask to put on, and the machine started to make the liquid to something that can best be described as mist. This I inhaled. I sat there on the bed for 5-10 minutes inhaling the mist and I felt I could breathe deeper for every breath. When the container was empty, I paid, talked to the doctor and went home.

So now I am home feeling much better. No heavy breath, not tight chest, no cough, feeling almost brand new. :)

There is a lesson in this also. When I talked to the doctor he told me that when I get a cold I must be aware that the cold can trigger the asthma to break out. Therefor I must get treatment if it takes to long. The cold can turn into asthma attacks instead. Meaning that if one get a cold, and the cold passes (no bugs any longer and CRP is ok) and one continue coughing it has turned in to asthma problems. And I believe him. I felt like someone standing on my chest before I went to the emergency room. Now I feel like I have no cough at all and I can breathe freely. The cough was asthma.

If I feel this fine all day through tomorrow to I will go to work Thursday.

I am so happy there is medicine.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
