morning's doings

I am propped up in bed with the nebulizer, studying. I will be propped up in bed all day, studying, nebulizing at least three times. I still don't have the new med from the pulmonologist I saw last week (a nebulizer version of Pulmicort). I did finally reach someone at the office, and she is checking on it for me. I would probably feel much better if I was getting my asthma meds at regular intervals. I still say it is cramping my style--I'm accustomed to running around and living a fairly standard life on campus, and I am now stuck at home propped up with my face attached to a machine for an hour and a half each day. This is taking some getting used to, especially since it causes significant tremors and fatigue. My emotional reaction is to wonder why on earth I am getting this degree if this is how my life is going to be. But I do still have a working mind and working hands and a working voice when I'm not on the machine, and eventually I will figure out this machine thing.

Since I've been hiding in friends-only posts, I should note for my public readers that I am back to daily headaches. I am working on a theory that I may be allergic to my yummy raspberry coffee. (Sarah, you may be getting the remainder of it at your next visit if I am correct. I bought another flavor and will switch coffees today and see if I can break the headache streak since the only thing I can connect to the headaches is the change in coffee.

My laptop is still visiting its new friend, the tech guy. I hope to hear something soon since this machine I'm working on is really not too stable.

Hopefully I can remain alert, retain what I am studying, and do some reflective writing. If I had a neural interface that I could use to write and edit, it might be intriguing. Then again, it might be disastrous. That could make a fun novel idea...

Ethics calls...

bring it on!
question: why did I not get to hear you go on the nebulizer when I was at your house? How long are your docs saying you have to do this? what is it supposed to help with?

As for the coffee, bring it on!!! I drank a full pot this morning... too bad Alexis couldn't join me for that. hahaha! I can't believe we're resorting to possible bribery to get me to come back...

Hope you feel beter and that you get things done!

p.s. I'm in philosophy right now as we speak...you should feel honored that I would be multi-tasking right now and talking to you...

Re: bring it on!
Would you believe I was too busy, um, chatting, to nebulize while you wee here? LOL! Don't ever let me do that again! I paid.

Re: raspberry coffee!
Got it at Payless, which is our Kroger branch. It came in beans which needed grinding. I make it up and then add 1 tbsp Splenda and 1 tbsp chocolate creamer to the cup. Mmmmm! Very sweet coffee. You might like it.

That coffee sounds great. I would definitely drink something like that even though I love my house blend of Columbian and Espresso. We got some peppermint falovered coffee which was to die for.
