I have turned into an obsessive psycho CFer in hopes of improving my health. I have to explain that despite my Drs disapproving looks and sighs, I work at a school. Yes! I know children are slimy balls of jumping germs. I know they will gladly sneeze or cough right in your face; I have had several colds due to this coughing in face act. I know they carry chicken pox, the flu, the common cold and oh so much more. BUT, by working at a school a CFer has 2 FULL months to work obsessively on their health. What other jobs allows you to do this? Uh, none that I know of. And even if there is another job that does, you probably don't get hugged 32 times a day and told, "I love you" by your co-workers.
Anyways, back to my point. I am off for the summer, but the hubbers and all my friends still have regular jobs so....I occupy my time with tons of treatments. Just the other day, my husband came home and looked at me and said, "Wow, seems like all you do is treatments!" Yup, it's true! And guess what? I coughed up 2, yes, I said 2 plugs in ONE cough!!! I know! Amazing right? And one was super fatty and big. Gross, but so cool. I had to inspect it for an hour thinking how gross it is that these are ALL over my lungs.
Now that I am doing crazy amounts of lung therapy and exercise, I can feel where my plugs are. It is weird, like all the junk cleared out around the plugs and I am super aware of where they are hanging out. I should say I know where some of the plugs are because I am sure I have dozens. Well, my mission this summer is to get as many out as possible, but as any CFer knows plugs are hard to move. The other problem is one of my problem spots is right behind my lady friend (I feel weird saying boob on my blog). This sucks because if it was anywhere else I could have hubbers pound away with chest percussion, but no can do thanks to the lady friend. Sigh.
I have an appointment in August so my goal is to be in the high 50s (wishful thinking??) by my next appointment. My (very) recent all time high was 54% which is still crazy because my norm had become 46-49% Okay, now I am rambling...
