Some Changes

Thursday, October 23, 2014

I am trusting the process of change in my life today. One thing at a time, hoping and praying to eventually find myself on the other side of this with a story to tell. Pressing on one day at time. Believing that the victory will be worth the effort.

Doctor's Visit Yesterday Was Very Helpful

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

I am really beginning to love the people in the doctor's office. They are so incredibly helpful. They really listen to me and make good suggestions. I feel free to ask all of the questions that I need to ask and they answer them. I have seen a different person so far on every visit and everyone of them has been helpful.

After explaining what has been happening since the last time that I saw them, they recommended a few changes in the dosing of one of my medications and they suggested that I add a different medication to the mix that I had never tried before. I left the office and took my first dose of the new medication on my way to school and changed the dose of the first medication this morning when it was time to take it once again.

I have my fingers crossed that this week is going to be better than last. Hopefully, less coughing and more restful sleep.

Round Two of Allergy Shots Today

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Last night was rough. I am not sure if installing the air purifiers and getting them running stirred up stuff in my home or what. I coughed and coughed and coughed and coughed. I was beginning to think it would never stop. I finally ended up sending out a few messages to friends asking them to please pray for me because it was beginning to look as though I was never going to be able to rest. I slept for a couple of hours and now I am awake and Sparking. I plan to talk to the doctor again today about what I can do to better manage these symptoms. It has been a rough stretch for me. Hoping to feel better soon!

Removing Allergens from My Home

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I have been using my "spare time" to remove as many allergens from my home as possible. I have already purchased dust mite covers for my mattress and pillows and I am debating about purchasing one for my box spring. I spent a large portion of my day yesterday on cleaning all of my bed linens in hot water including the comforter, quilt, and bed skirt. I cleaned the baseboards, heating vents, ceiling fans, and the vacuum. Took everything apart and got all of the hard to reach places that I don't often get. I washed down walls, floors, ceilings, window sills and frames, door frames, pictures and anything else that I came into contact with that might have had some dust on it. I have purchased two air purifiers that are on their way. They should arrive on Tuesday. I have been reading up on Spark People on how to remove allergens from your home and I have been doing my best to make my home a safe and healthy place.

Definitely a one day at a time adventure for me. I cannot do everything at once, but I am working hard to do a little something every day.

Oh, and by the way, the scale moved another .4 of a pound down yesterday. LOL!

    Sounds like you are doing what you need to do. My allergist also told me to eliminate things with fragrance. She said most products like soaps, detergents air fresheners have chemically made fragrance. Of course I have asthma too but it made a big difference for me.
