- Benedryl before bed helps combat insomnia. It also helps you wake up wheeze free in the morning.
- Nasonex (the commercials with Antonio Bandaras as a bee) is great stuff, but the first two hours after taking it are hell!
- The doses of steroids are going down, and the wheezing isn't coming back.
With that seeming to be working itself out, I need to turn to the other pressing health problems at the moment: diet and exercise.
The exercise is purely a motivation thing. I need to do it as soon as I get home.
The diet is getting easier at the steroid-induced cravings subside. Seriously, I didn't wake ravenously hungry today!
I was also looking for healthier, cheaper options and stumbled across Alton Brown's lentil episode. I have a few recipes that I want to try along those lines.
Though I don't know if I'm brave enough to try the cookies...
