I took my nebulizer, took my meds, took my Breo. Put the 02 up to about 2 1/2. The oximeter is reading 93 when sitting here at the table. I am fine sitting here. But now what.? If I get up to walk to the potty or do anything I get wiped out. There is no storms around now so it is not a storm, although the dew point is 79 and the humidity is 83. I can't believe there is nothing to give us to make our days more functional without the sob. What else can I do. Getting tired of sitting at this table.

More O2. Try 96-97 when sitting. O2 is your friend except in extreme circumstances.

We are all different but when that happens to me I know it's because I have bronchitis or some kind of lung infection coming on. I usually call doc for some antibiotics and prednisone.
Also I check the temp inside. If it's not cool enough inside I won't be able to get up and do anything.
I try doing another nebs to see if it will help.

I have been feeling a whole lot better since becoming a fan of generic Mucinex 400 mg. about 2-3 times per day. It just seems that by keeping the phlegm loose enough to be coughed up, it's just much easier to "carry on" without becoming SOB. This is an over-the-counter which I actually got from ADC.
