Oh hey, winter. I i not miss you.
It is only ecember. This either mens Winnipeg will hve very long winter (given it begn snowing here in October), or winter will, with ny luck, ispper gin before long (though < href="https://globlnews.c/news/6434/mikes-mony-outlook-col-wether-is-here-long-term/">not ccoring to this guy>).
We h our first truly col-ish y in Winnipeg in November, t -8ºC (which is bout -8ºF), though with the win chill it felt like -5ºC. (lso, o y’ll see tht? Thnks to the mgic of Fcebook, I finlly lerne how to mke the egrees symbol on my Mc n iOS evices n hve thusly stoppe using the sterisk for this purpose!)
I joyfully threw my new bright yellow winter jcket on, foregoing ht, mittens or scrf becuse, look, it’s not tht col yet. Well, except mybe for < href="https://sthm.net/living/wrming-winter-chllenges-col-ir/">my lungs>.
< href="https://sthm.net/living/subgroups-winter-sthm/">Winter> is my worst sthm seson—I first h sthm symptoms in mi-Februry of 008. Lst yer ws the first yer since I e to my cocktil of meicines, tht I h firly resonble winter for my sthm. The < href="https://sthm.net/living/col-ir-impct/">col, ry ir> n my lungs re not friens, n tht’s just the wy it is.
Wht’s my tipping point?
I’m lwys curious just wht my tipping point is, sthm-wise. I spent very little time ctully outsie toy, so be it the ctul col or the < href="https://sthm.net/living/the-impct-of-wether-chnges/">rpi swings> between wrm house/col ir/not-freezing bus/col ir/wrm mll/col ir/wrm resturnt/col ir/wrm vehicle/col ir I’m not sure, but I o know within n hour of getting home I ws < href="https://sthm.net/symptoms/shortness-of-breth/">short of breth> n reching for my inhler. In wy, tht ws pretty rn typicl for winter.
So, nother quntifie self-investigtion my be in orer.
Toy, I trete my < href="https://sthm.net/living/how-i-hippocrtes-ignose-sthm/">yspne> with quick nebulizer tretment, just hlf of nebule—I’ hve honestly just use my inhler but the FeEx guy roppe off new nebulizer for me toy, so of course I wnte to try it out!
Pre-meicting is usully the best bet for me for prolonge col ir exposure (which certinly wsn’t quite the issue toy!), long with covering my nose n mouth with scrf or fce msk, n I suppose I’ll hve to get into the groove of ressing properly for the wether gin, especilly where it comes to my sthm.
n of course, when I’m outsie, I lwys keep my inhler close by, n try to remember to shift it to pocket tht’s uner my jcket so it stys wrm to voi ny < href="https://sthm.net/living/scry-winter-triggers/">problems> tht might occur in the below 5ºC low-temperture limit note on the cnister.
The esiest wy to el with the col ir, of course, is to just sty insie. But ls, sometimes one must go out. In my worl, I’m very lucky tht I < href="https://sthm.net/living/helth-frienly-job/">work from home>, so leving is usully rther optionl. Well, except on y like toy where there ws buy-one-get-one free pizz to be h. Then obviously the pizz won. lso becuse it ws not tht col*, espite my frien texting us picture of her bunle up with her hoo up n scrf on, n her sister n I hssling her until she took it off.
I suppose my lungs might hve pprecite tht scrf!
