A NEW REGIME
I'll also be trying a different medication, one that replaces my current preventers. It should be easier, taking one, rather than two.
I also had another pulmonary function test. I'd been monitoring my peak flow; while low in the morning, I hadn't realized just how bad my situation was. The PF test showed that I was worse than I'd been since December. Hence, the steroids.
The extreme heat and humidity are the major difficulty for me right now. It makes breathing a struggle. I have the same problem in a steam room - I can't take it for more than a minute or so before having to leave.
The high ozone levels have also caused my functioning to experience a decline. Alas, only an atmospheric improvement (likely if a cold front moves in, which its due to) will change that.
