Maybe some remember me, I had asthmatic bronchitis from Oct 15th until the first week in January.
Now it is early Feb. I had to go to the doctor for another reason, and while I was there, I told him that I have become afraid to work out doing cardio. I am doing strength training OK, but the one time I did Cardio since getting over the bronchitis, I started coughing again and my lungs hurt plus when I went to bed I noticed wheezing. (Of course, I got up and took my asthma inhaler.)
He explained to me that I need to do the cardio to finish getting over the bronchitis I had. He says there is still mucus that needs to be worked out and the coughing is good for that.
He did change my puffer to something else because I told him I refuse to use it unless I am really in need because the side effects are worse then the coughing. (I usually just cough when my asthma bothers me, wheezing is really uncommon for me.) I am delighted to have a different puffer and it gives me no side effects at all! Yea!
But even though he told me the cardio is good for me, I have now gone another week without doing any. I am still afraid. I can't get sick again. I am unemployed and the bronchitis I had kept me from getting hired for a long stretch.
Has anyone else gone through this? What helped you?
You will either have the pain of self discipline...or the pain of regret.
I am a warrior in the battle to improve my wellbeing. I am fierce, strong, deep, untamed, calm, unknown and blessed from God's grace.
Half of knowing what you want is knowing what you are willing to give up to get it.
