I'd a funny time last night. Wondering whether I lay down too quickly after inhaler. Or perhaps particles of dust from building site - l'm not opening my windows until the site is all cleaned and finished next year.
I'd taken my nightly two puffs of seretide, last thing and settled down to sleep. Started getting that tremble Ventolin gives me sometimes and felt a bit odd. Husband turned around and asked if I was ok giving me a huge bear hug in the process. Didn't have the heart to say if its an asthma attack, the last thing I need is to be lying down being hugged to death. So said I was fine. I can deal with it. Its normal. I lied, knowing he was dead tired.
As he turned over, I got up to make way downstairs for an icepole to ease my throat that felt like it was about to close over. Made it to kitchen ok then icepole in one hand and ventolin in the other, took a slug of each. Kept this up for about the five minutes suggested on my asthma pack and all settled down again. Weird. Hoping doesn't happen tonight again.
At the time, did wonder if this was the start of an actual attack (which I'm lucky enough not to have had yet, touch wood) while desperately hoping it wasn't as there's too much else happening in the family just now, to give them yet one more worry.
