jeweledvixen: (A Adam Plantbert Bored)
Last night I was eating popcorn when I inhaled a piece down my trachea. I started coughing and hacking, but it got worse instead of better. Suddenly, I couldn't take a deep breath to cough effectively. I was really gasping for breath. It felt like I was trying to breathe through a pinhole. I could actually feel the popcorn blocking my trachea.

Stupidly, I thought, "I should get in the car and go to the Emergency Room." Fortunately, after about two minutes of this, I got it dislodged, but it was the longest two minutes of my life. And almost my last. I have been short of breath before with my lung and heart problems, but never like this. I was really scared. Thank goodness I was able to get it out finally. I would never have made it 15 minutes to the ER.

Today my throat hurts and feels so scratchy. I'm still having trouble breathing, but that's because I pulled some muscles around my rib cage and in my back. It hurts like heck to take a deep breath. It also hurts like heck to lay on my right side. Sleeping is difficult. Crap, this sucks.

I feel like the Wicked Witch of the West - I'm melting! I'm melting!

It's 9:30pm and it's still 83°F outside. (the F stands for f**king) I have two fans running on high, but it's not helping much. It's very humid, too. It's like trying to breathe under water. This is really bad with my breathing problems. I haven't been able to sleep for the past two nights because it's so hot.

My poor kitties are too hot to move. They are both crashed on the floor in the hall just outside the door to my office. Coco is sprawled out across my oxygen tubing, which they both like to do for some reason.

I really hope we get those thunderstorms tomorrow so it cools down. I don't care if it rains all day.
