Taken at our neighborhood beach at sunset

The air quality remains pretty awful here today still. So instead of running or doing something crazy active outside, we decided to take advantage of our beach. We packed a cooler, and went down late in the afternoon and got a good hours worth of swimming in. It felt good, and I worked the lungs pretty hard. I'm still annoyed with the tightness in my chest. It's better since stopping Tobi, but I'm inpatient I guess and want to feel 100% better now.

I got my Cayston a little early, and started that today too. I'm hoping to see a difference that I'm comfortable with before I travel for work Tuesday night. Part of me is wondering if the tightness in my chest could also be from anxiety?

I'm the first to admit, that I've been a ball of nerves here lately. I love to travel, just haven't done it alone and I'm going to miss Scott, and the pups like crazy!!! I've never flown alone etc, and I think I'm just afraid of being out of my comfort zone.

Here's to some happy breathing and decreased tightness :)

I just started traveling on my own as well. It is nerve wracking, but you'll get it! I still don't like it, but now I know I can do it. =)

I hate flying to, but since I've been flying alone, I'm yet to be on a really crappy turbulent flight. Don't worry, you'll do great! Where are you going to?

I had tightness in my chest a few months back and I went on Xopenex. It really helped me. Just a thought (not medical advice) :)
