I can usually manage my bronchiectasis these days but today has not been good. I might even need to stay in bed tomorrow. On Thursday we had a book club meeting after work, or in other words an excuse for a small select group to sort of discuss a book, have a drink and a bite to eat. I was late home so did all my chest stuff quite late.
Friday we took the day off as it was our 27th wedding anniversary. Had a day out which did involve a bit more walking than I would have liked but not too bad. Back home early enough to pick daughters prescription up from the GP.
Saturday - the killer! I had volunteered to help with the church cake stall for an hour. There was a gazebo but it absolutely poured down and I got wet. I then had to get food for a picnic in the evening. Next was the gym and personal training to keep my lungs going. My trainer is an exercise specialist and did treat me gently. I then had to do my evening ministrations too early as we went to an open air concert at Audley End. Disabled parking was great - really near the entrance. We found a place put our chairs down. We had our picnic. The problem was it seemed that over 50% of the people were smoking. It did my lungs no good and even my husband said it was too much.
Result - lungs hurting, not feeling good and day in bed alternately sleeping and watching the Olympics.
I think it has shocked my husband that I can't do it all!
I might not go to work tomorrow if I still feel bad - a disability day.
