Learning to get a second wind

Being on oxygen with a long air hose still can’t get me down stairs to do laundry. It is a major exercise for me to breathe on my own to make short trips down stairs. I’ve been doing lots of breathing exercising and lately I have developed the ability to get a second wind or to say, I’m able to increase my intake of oxygen without the machine. There might even be a little hope for me. Not a promise, but a hope.

How scary that must be for you.

It can get uncomfortable, I feel a little apprehensive about laundry day, but I wouldn’t call it a full blown fear.

I meant not having enough air to get up and down stairs to do the laundry must be scary.

That’s what I’m saying. I’m learning how to demand more lung capacity from myself…
