Many of the posts on this site are naturally dealing with problems and answering issues, but every now and then, perhaps due a medication really helping, or sometimes by taking advice about a trigger, or a slight adjustment progress is made to beat asthma.
I thought it might be nice to have a thread of posts which cater for such happy times! It could be as brief as being really well for a day, or very much improved it would appear from now on!
To kick off, I have had a superb day and I just want to celebrate. I have had a day taking the air at Southend-On-Sea, and walked the 1 & 1/4 mile pier and back. The weather was excellent, and if you look under the nature post of Kate you will see that I saw a seal today at the end of the pier, which was a wonderful experience.
But to top it all, having just watched the 'Apprentice' (my favourite programme!) I have done my peak flow and acheived a wopping 500, and no reliever involved! It has never been known, but I did a lot of breathing exercises today along the pier. This is rather fantastic because at one time I thought I would never get passed 450. I feel so vindicated now, in view of my many posts about Southend, that sea air on a nice day does indeed combat my asthma. Earlier this year my readings were often 150 - 200 and a reliever was needed to get any higher, and I thought an average of 300 would be my lot.
So it's a been a fantastic day!
