I started having an asthma attack literally out of nowhere yesterday.

It was not okay.

I think I got triggered by the mop chemicals that my parents have that are super flowery/powdery smelling. I’ve had problems with them triggering my allergies before, but nothing like yesterday.

I just kept coughing and gagging and couldn’t get air.

It was especially awesome because I was supposed to meet my new therapist yesterday and I was looking forward to that. I’m seriously bummed that now I have to wait until next week.


I ended up having to go to the emergency room because it was so bad. I sat outside in the cold air though, and by the time they got to me I felt like telling them I could just go home.

Whatever though. Breathing treatment and X-Ray and a shiny new inhaler later, (because I couldn’t find my old one), I am trying to breathe today.

I’m just frustrated. I got a lot of homework done this morning, so that’s good. I fear I’m not going to get any more done today, but I might later. I think I need a nap. I just feel worn out. Struggling to breathe is a pain.

I don’t have any other symptoms of anything except some itchy stuff from the allergies that set it off.

I mean, they didn’t test me in the ER so I guess they weren’t worried about it, but it’s hard to know. It came on pretty much instantly though.

We’ll see. I’m super tired of being itchy.
