The Sunday Post–June 10th Edition

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

This week I’m going to be a little whiny.  I haven’t been feeling well for a while, so I finally called and made an appointment to see the doctor.  This visit was spurred mostly by the impending horse show next week.  I have been coughing a lot and I haven’t been sleeping well, and that has made me crabby, so I thought maybe I should find out what’s going on.  I discovered that I have asthma, and now I am on all of these awful tasting inhalers and nasal sprays.  It’s amazing how much better I feel after just a few days, though I am still quite tired.  I am a bit depressed about the diagnosis, though I’m relieved to finally be feeling better.  The biggest difference so far? I can sing along with the radio without coughing and gasping for breath halfway through the songs.  I hope to get the symptoms under control quickly so I can cut back on some of these stupid inhalers!

So, my question for you this week is – If you or a family member has asthma, what are some home remedies you swear by, in addition to regular maintenance medications?

    I am picking up The Reckoning this week, I am anxious to continue this creepy little tale..LOL I am curious about the Ruins of Lace and look forward to your review. Bummer on the asthma, but once they get your meds perfected you should do well. It must be hard on you, with the horses. Hope this week is better for you hun.
