Last night I was just really really tired so I didn’t add anything. I laid on the couch from about 6 until 10 except for the times that Kelly took me out for a couple walks. I was mostly able to breath but I was so very very tired. I feel asleep pretty much as soon as my head hit the pillow.
Oh, I’ll also mention that last night was the first time I ever took an inhaler. Doctor prescribed me some Albuterol which should help with the breathing, and while I didn’t notice any effect (including the tremors some people get) it was nice knowing that I had something that could help out. That could account for me being able to breath better last night during the walks but it’s hard to tell.
This morning though I woke up around 4am, went to the bathroom, and was thinking to myself how I felt pretty good. But then as soon as I got back in bed, I started having issues breathing again. It wasn’t anything too bad, but my breathing was labored enough to keep me from being able to fall asleep until around 4:30. I considered using the inhaler but I wasn’t sure how that would affect my sleep and since it takes 30min to work anyways I guess it wasn’t necessary. Just some breathing exercises and I was able to get it.
Then once I woke up for the day, I was able to breath pretty good but I had absolutely zero energy. So of course the answer to that is always going to be coffee! I gotta say that caffeine is a pretty effective drug for me as I battle this and it targets the fatigue just like coffee does any other day when you’re not sick.
Around 10am breathing became slightly labored again and I took my inhaler. It’s kind of frustrating how I have not yet been able to establish any trends but I’m not exactly being the best experimental scientist throwing in a couple different variables into the mix all at once.
Mentally I’d have to say that my brain is a bit foggy and I’m not exactly the most fully with it today. I’ve made a couple silly mistakes at work already that I normally wouldn’t make. Thankfully I’m not doing anything critical and thus have shifted to doing some less important paperwork type stuff. Hopefully that lifts soon though because I’m not a big fan of not having my full mental faculties.
