The Lord is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise Him. Exodus 15:2
I have asthma, but a mild case. Or so I thought. When my inhaler ran out back in March, I thought I’d try to go without. I hadn’t had any issues for years, and thought maybe I didn’t need it after all.
Come June, I was coughing like a two-pack-a-day smoker. Trust me when I say: This is not the time to be coughing out in public! People would look at me as if I were evil, and move clear across the store.
Worse yet, the pharmacy wouldn’t refill my prescription because it had expired. I hadn’t seen my doctor since pre-COVID times. The pharmacy made me wait until I could make an appointment and see my doctor to write a new prescription.
Once I got a new inhaler, it still took three months before I stopped wheezing. It seems it takes time for my lungs to recuperate when they’ve been denied what they need for so long.
Before you go, I just wanted to thank all of my readers for catapulting my book into the Top 100 for Catholic books on Amazon, and the Top 200 for Christian Women’s Issues.
