Thought my fellow asthmatics might get a kick out of this.
A few days ago I chatting with friend and famous asthma researcher , Dr. Sally Wenzel , and I had mentioned to her how I wasn’t feeling that great , and how I had just upped my pred to 50mg in an attempt to stave off a prison stay. I told her I feared that if the pred didn’t do the trick that Id probably end up in the slammer, but that I would try to hold off from going in as long as possible.
This was her response :
” Grrr. Sorry you are on the high dose pred at the moment! We need to TRY the Qvar in you, for sure. MIGHT limit the bumps (might not, but won’t know until we try). Funny, your words on prison, slammer, not going until you really need to, etc, are SOOOO typical!!!! Sometimes I think you guys must all get together and come up with the lingo. There really is a “severe asthma personality” I think!”
Well fellow asthmatics……. I think the jinx is up ! She’s wise to us …..
Actually…….She’s an awesome Asthma-tologist ! ……. (I just made that one up right now)
Btw…The the evil candy did it’s job and I was able to avoid that incarceration. The trick now, is to wean off that poison without backsliding.
