I grew up with asthma, and it stayed with me until my early 30s, then poof, it was gone. Even when I stupidly took up smoking seven years ago (I quit for good January 7), I never had any asthma flareups.
Today, it came back…the underlying wheeze, tightness in the chest. Figures, I’m allergic to cats, and I’m in a closed house with three cats and a large dog ! And one of the kitties wasted no time jumping on my lap. Even though I took a Claritin clone beforehand, my poor, poor immune system didn’t stand a chance! Uncle?
I just finished a cup of strong black tea, and my mother in law gave me a rescue inhaler (not using that unless I have to).
I’m outside in the fresh air, and just finished the tea, so I’m doing a lot better.
