Allergy season has been in full swing this week in my neck of the woods... itchy throat, itchy watery eyes, uncontrollable sneezing, constant runny nose!! Yes, I have all those symptoms, to the Nth degree!! I thought I was gonna die... Benadryl wasn't working... found a Children's Claritin bottle in my medicine cabinet and took a dose in the middle of the night, was finally able to sleep!!
Then I had to wait 24 hours to take another dose... by the end of Thursday, I could barely breathe. My lungs were soo inflamed, every breath took serious effort. The doctors offices were closed by then, what was I to do? I didn't think it was bad enough for the ER yet... too much effort with 4 kids to think of, too!
Then I remembered... Over a year ago, I had been sick (possible crazy flu... what was that one that people were dying of? yeah, that one) Anyway, in the midst of that, I had been given an albuterol inhaler! So I dug through my medicine cabinet... JACKPOT! shook it big, large exhale, put it into my mouth and DEEP BREATH ...and relief
I might just survive!
what you just witnessed is my late Friday submission to Five Minute Friday! It's been one heck of a day, but I finally found Five Minutes... maybe you can, too! If not this week, then stop by next Friday at The Gypsy Mama!
