i'm hanging in there gabs. my hubby has something going on with him, and the docs just don't know, but that causes stress, and financially we are in massive trouble, and depression has hit us both pretty hard, and yet i try to put on a smile for my son. it's just been a rough couple of months that's all. don't you worry about me...YOU need to work on staying healthy, so you can be here for all of us who need you!!

Hello gabs. As you very well know, I'm not active anymore. I'm still hanging on to catch up on all my friend's previous discussions. This is already a 4 days old thread and I'm glad to find this one. I hope you are feeling better as of this time. I'm sorry though that I wasn't able to respond to your previous threads. You know the reason dearie. :)

Dearie, I really am trying to swing back to the mood here but I guess it's just not the proper time yet. I'm also quite busy with my girls lately helping them deal with their homeworks. :)

Hi, there, gabs! I am puzzled: I replied to this post last night and went to bed, and I can't find my reply at all! Anyway, here I am now. I wanted to tell you to slow down and rest up, because you have been through a lot--your first physio, the floods, worrying about your babies, visiting, sewing your pants on your comforter, looking after the Patchouli Kid--it's a lot on your plate! So I am not surprised your lungs are acting up. Make sure you get enough sleep and get a lot of that cherry yogourt you love, because antibiotics screw up the good bacteria in your gut. Yogourt will keep things on an even keel in your tummy. So sleep tight, sweet dreams, and we will still be here when you come back, so just feel better!Hugs and kisses to you and the Boy! {{{{{Gabs/Gissi}}}}}

I am here at times just so slow at the time, also add to that List stopping smoking as Lungs have deteriorated and if I don't stop now my Doctor can not see me being around in 5 years so I have no choice but to give it up. And it is so hard but I am doing it even though it is very stressful and awful lol Love and Hugs to you from both of us

Not getting enough air into your lungs will have you feeling tired and blah all the time, because you don't have enough oxygen in your blood to keep up the perky peppiness (Gissi has you beat on that!). When my asthma flares up it's all I can do to haul my behind to where I need to be...I will share with you a breathing exercise I learned from a friend who does yoga (it's helped me a lot, but do it slowly at first). Lie down flat on the bed (no pillows!)and relax completely. Slowly inhale through your nose for 3 counts, hold for five counts, and exhale through your mouth, but with your lips puckered (as if you're whistling) and completely empty your lungs. Rest for 3 counts and repeat. Do five reps for the first week, and gradually increase over time. It's made a big difference in my breathing. I have to confess: I was a chainsmoker in the not-too-distant past, and it was a real struggle to breathe and not get any sympathy whatsoever from those around me. So. I am happy you quit and I know you'll stay quit. Good Girl Gabs! {{{*}}} Lotsa hugs....

I'm sorry to hear you are feeling poorly. I hope the antibiotics work. Have they tried you on steroids? Not an easy option but a friend of mine has to use them occasionally. And they do the trick... just a shame they come with side affects. Take care sweetie! xxx
