Welcome

Hello!! I'm not sure if anyone except maybe some friends and family (because I'll kindly force them to do so) is going to read this blog, but I was inspired so much by reading another girl's blog who went through this and much much more, that I decided to try it out for myself...
Apart from the obvious therapeutic properties all of this will have, it will also be a great tool for me, as everyone always wants to know how I'm doing. Now they can read how I'm doing anytime they want to. Especially those people who are afraid to ask me and end up asking my friends :-)
Right now I'm ok-ish. Had a difficult morning. It started out fine, did my first neb (inhaling medication using small machine called a nebuliser), had breakfast and did my normal morning e-mail/facebook check, then proceded upstairs again for remaining nebs and lying on physio-mat (don't know the technical term for this device, it's almost like a back-massager that you lie on, which pounds out mucus! It belongs to my physiotherapist). After coughing my lungs out etc, I realised that I'm running a fever. Got back into bed. Realised I've only got an hour before I need to be at physio (I go 3 times a week, she 'beats'/pounds my chest to get more junk out). Decided that I don't have the energy to go and asked her if I could postpone it or something. They're so amazing, both of them, that I ended up receiving a home visit! (I also received a home visit from some dude from from the municipality who wanted to read the metres... think he got the shock of his life when I opened the door in my pj's with my O2 restraining me like a dog tied to a tree or something, and acting like nothing is wrong!)
Luckily my day got better after that, had a peacefull afternoon and my mom and I just got back from having some McDonalds drive-thru cappuchino at the beach parking lot!
I think this is enough for today...
P.s. I'm not very technologically advanced.. and still figuring out how everything here works, so bear with me!
