BUT Barbara, the nurse practitioner I see, spent a lot of time with me. She had me in the office about 45 minutes. We went over a lot of things. She feels that the esophageal spasms are caused by stress and the asthma attack on Sunday was what pushed me over the edge. She has upped one of my medications and put me on a strict diet. Already today I feel the difference. My diet will be rather bland, but better than what I have been going through.
I am to try to take as much stress out of my life as possible. I don't see how I can, working two jobs, taking care of Joe, taking care of the house, etc., etc., etc. But I am trying to relax. I am trying to not let some things bother me and just take it easy. It seems the one place I really relax is church.
I wanted to join the choir at church for Easter, but the one thing I cannot do right now is sing from my diaphram. So that's out. I guess God has other plans for me.
But, enough about that. It is cold again in this house. I know it's supposed to warm up on Sunday and then get cold again. But I don't think it's going down into the single digits for awhile which should help a bit.
I thought I would show you some pictures of Ocean City, NJ. I am looking forward to being down there this year. But not in these temperatures.
