I’ve not been on my A game for three weeks. It started with a pneumonia vaccine. Then fever and chills. Then achy. Then I lost my voice. Now I’ve got this croupy, dry cough that sounds like I’m a smoker, and I’ve never even smoked! I don’t have allergies, and I don’t have asthma. 😦
It’s definitely going around.
But, I want off this merry-go-round.
I’m over it!
Or better stated, I am over not feeling my perky self! I want to be over this crud now! I no longer feel near as bad as I sound!
I’m usually very healthy. I don’t like taking medicine unless I have to. I’ve been taking vitamin C and zinc to no avail.
So, I finally broke down and went to the doctor.
Bronchitis it is!
I passed college medical terminology with flying colors. I know bronch-itis is the inflammation of the bronchi. The bronchi are the air tubes that connect the windpipe to the lungs.
Two different medications injected into the Dorsogluteal site, and the steroids should be kicking in before I know it. Or so I hope. 🙂
My bronchi should be restored to their happy, healthy functioning part of our human anatomy.
There’s just something about being able to breathe comfortably that most of us have grown quite accustomed to. But for me, I’d prefer it without that nagging tickle and wheezing and coughing.
That’s how we were created. Well, actually just Adam. God’s first human creation. God breathed the breath of life into his nostrils and he became a living being.
The next time you feel shortness of breath whether it be due to a bout of bronchitis or the excitement of exertion or other emotional conditions, I urge you to slow down, take a few deep cleansing breaths, and remember God is the one that breathed life into each one of us. Thank Him for that life and the breath that keeps it in operation.
Inhale in God’s presence through His Holy Spirit. Exhale out all your unhealthy thoughts and actions.Then just breathe. Let God’s breath fill you with the power to be the wondrous living being God created you to be!
To all of you who also are joining me in having the crud this holiday season, I wish you a Merry Christmas and
GET WELL SOON! 🙂
Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
Love and laughter,
