I got off track. Again. Doing a blogging project during finals month is just silly I think. I’m just gonna jump in when I can, I think.
To be honest, I don’t really have a “typical” day. So I’m gonna try to do a typical-ish school day, since at least those have some sort of substance and sort-of structure.
7:05 am – Get up, put on glasses, stumble to bathroom, check peak flow, take Ventolin inhaler if I’m in the yellow zone.
7:10 – Get dressed.
7:20 – Take Atrovent, Symbicort and Qvar (usually in that order). Brush hair between inhaler hits. Brush teeth because that is important on inhaled steroids–and for other reasons ;).
8:00 – arrive at school, sit around and study, hopefully friends come visit me because it is boring if they don’t.
10:45 – MORNING SNACKYTIME. Or what most people would call breakfast but it is not legit breakfast food usually. More like school cafeteria crap.
11:30 – class. [yes, this term was slacker Monday, Wednesday, Fridays, I only had one class]
12:20 pm – end class, bus home.
1:15 – Take atrovent if needed, eat lunch, check Twitter, deal with morning e-mails.
1:45 – Social media timez – twitter/fb/youtube or studyyy.
2:45 – Check peak flow, change for a walk, do a nebulizer treatment, stick earphones in ears, cellphone, iPod and inhaler in pocket and polish off hopefully at least 5K.
3:40 – Stretch. Check post-walk peak flow. Do a prophylactic neb treatment post-walk to head off any nasty delayed-flaring, tweet whilst doing said treatment, and plug the Garmin into the computer to synch it to GarminConnect and Dailymile. I freaking love Dailymile, you should join me there.
3:50 – Probably realize the neb’s been spitting out nothing for five minutes and the treatment is done. Take neb out of mouth, quit watching YouTube, pull out the textbooks or write a blog post.
4:00 – OMG SNACK TIME!
5:50 – Clear off table for DINNER.
6:00 — YAY DINNER!
7:00 – You can probably find me hanging out on Twitter for most of the evening.
7:30 – Evening Atrovent [if needed], Qvar and Symbicort. Sucks to your ass-mar! Maybe check my peak flow in here if I’m not lazy.
9:30 – I’ll probably be eating again around now. 😉
9:35-11:15 – Hangin’ with my Twitter peeps. I spend a lot of time on Twitter, yo.
11:15 — Check peak flow if don’t forget. Take some Ventolin if it’s in the yellow, if I’m good to go I take some Atrovent to hopefully head off any nighttime lungy dips. Go pee [you wanted details, Wego prompt, I spared you all the other times I went pee during the day], brush teeth and then it is . . .
11:30 – Inhaler by the bed . . . BEDTIME!
