Short work day thanks to the holiday. I headed straight to the pool and met up with my friend, Amy D. She's a wicked swimmer and I was hoping to get some tips/make some observations to improve my stroke. She is tall (over 6 feet) and has the most beautiful body line in the water. I was supposed to swim 3500 meters but cut it short at 2650 because I was struggling with my asthma. I could feel everything inflame as I dunked my head into the heavily chlorinated water. Ugg. My chest was tight and I could start to hear myself wheeze and actually started coughing in the water. Did I mention that I was at the urgent care *again* yesterday morning? I was put on oxygen and then given a nebulizer treatment. F**k this. I am so sick of being sick. I have an appointment at the end of July with a leading allergy/asthma specialist but I don't think I can wait that long. I want to breathe. I feel like I am starting to lose control and I don't like this feeling at all. However, my body feels great. I don't want any sympathy or sorry's...I just want to feel good.
