and feeling like crap on a daily basis is certainly the best one! Even with all the prednisone and nebulizer treatments, it is obvious this flare-up is not going away until I stop inhaling the nasty things. On top of very little sleep I am very weak and not smoking. Just taking a shower is difficult.
Mon. is the big day and I will be off steroids after Tues. Hoping I won't need the nebulizer. Early in Sept., when I didn't smoke for 2 weeks, I barely used my rescue inhaler at all. I can't wait to get back to that point!
I know I can do this with the help of all of you and this site! I am already daily telling myself that, no matter what, I will not and cannot, give in to smoking. There is no denial. It is killing me and I want to live longer with the best quality of life I can!
I hope that all the newer people using this site realize, you don't have to get as sick as I have. Quit as soon as you can. I am only 58 and this has become beyond ridiculous. I don't care what excuses we use to smoke, it is not worth it!!!
