Nothing like waking up with asthma

I have seasonal asthma and let me tell you how much it sucks. It really, really sucks. I'm allergic to something this time of year (who knows what) and I woke up unable to get a breath fully in - which makes me panic, then cough my head off. Then I have to take a panic pill while running around the house throwing things around trying to find my inhaler. It's neat. I actually haven't had an attack for about 3 years now, so my inhaler was expired. I also didn't know what day it was when I woke up - and there has been no drinking or sleeping pills, just loss of brain. I didn't know whether or not I had to go to work, or if I could go back to bed. It was 4 am and I had to really think about it. When I realized it was Saturday, I was all "YES!" "YAY!"

I'm settled down now, but I can't get back to sleep. UG. This, I think, is an advantage to having a blog. It gives you something to do. There was something else I was going to talk about, but I can't remember now so I'll have to come back later. Perhaps my brain will return then.

An asthma attack would be HELLA scary, girlie!!! Breathing is very important.

I was also up at the asscrack of dawn b/c Mateo left to go golfing and I woke up and then Ben thinks it's enjoyable to get up and play at 5 a.m.

Starbucks delivery!! Yes! I'm thinking the gas would cost them too much, though. Damn gas.
