I went to see my little grandson yesterday afternoon. When I got home I began to feel a little breathless. I took my reliever inhaler but it got steadily worse as the evening progressed. It was looking as though I was having a COPD flare up. Luckily I had my rescue pack of Prednislone tablets to hand. I took the first dose and used my inhaler as a nebuliser using a spacer. An hour later my breathing had become much easier. This time last year I was in hospital due to an exacerbation. I had initially got a cold which led to the flare up. I did not want a repeat of the many stays I had there in 2016. I feel much better today so a crisis has been averted. Hope your day is going well. Photo my own.
