I've been putting it off... not because I thought I would "jinx" it, but because I wanted to be sure before I went public.
My asthma reared it's ugly head 7 years ago. From the first ugly, out-of-control year on, two things have been true:
- I will be sick in the fall. Sometime after school starts and no later than November, the lungs will go on hiatus and require mass amounts of drugs to get their groove back.
- I will be sick in the spring. Something will happen between February and May that will set the lungs off and again... mass quanities of drugs will be required to get back on the right track.
Nothing has happened.
No sudden drop of breathing scores
No slow downward spiral...
I'm not sick.
I haven't been sick since November.
It doesn't feel like I'm going to be sick.
All is quiet on the lung front.
Yeah, I still have tweaky lungs that freak out at smells and odors, but they haven't taken their traditional dive that requires prolonged treatment. They've been remarkably well behaved.
I know it doesn't sound like a big deal... but it's huge to me. To make it through spring without taking all the steroids... priceless!
Pardon me while I do a happy dance!
As you were...
PS ~ What would you celebrate today?
