Recent news has not been fun. The last couple weeks my asthma has gotten much worse again. All my medications (including the steroids) are currently at maximum doses and there isn't really anything else the doctors can do right now. We've tried everything. So for now, I'm just resting as much as I can, pretty house-bound, and exhausted.
We did try having me move in with my parents for a few days in case it was something in my apartment I was reacting too. There's been no change though so I'm going back home tonight. I've missed being in my home! I love my family, and I'll always be welcome here, but I've become accustomed to my own place.
There is one new medication that we are going to try, but it's supposed to take months to build up in the system and work. It's also insanely expensive. So far I have grants for the first month and a half of treatment, and we're working on getting me more grants. It'll take awhile - but hopefully this will help!
The other big news is that I'm working on the application for disibility right now. It's been over a year since my health got this bad, and there's no sign that I'll get significantly better for awhile. I don't know if they will grant it to me, asthma is a tricky one, but my Doctor supports me and I figure it's worth a try.
So - to try to make things a little less depressing - here are some things I'm happy about through all of this :)
~ My hubby, my family, and my friends love me!
~ I'm not reacting as badly to the high steroid levels as I usually do.
~ I have some awesome friends on-line that cheer me up every day :)
Love you guys!
