June 7th – Allergies and Inflamation

1999:   I’m a bit wheezy this morning.  What, no inhaler?  Oh no, I’ve left it daddy’s.  Daddy brought it down to me at Edons.  I’ve had a streamy day with eyes and nose.  Mum collected me at five and we went home to play in the garden.  Edon had given me Calpol before I left and I was very heavy eyed.  I ate my tea – pasta – NICE.  I wouldn’t have my inhalers (even after the heroic dash by dad) but I know how crafty mum is – she’ll probably sneak them to me whilst I’m asleep. 

2019: My asthma days. Fortunately I grew out of it at about 14, but due to still having annual checks and emergency inhalers it halted my army career as had to be 4 years clear of any checks or prescriptions. By the time this happened I’d been diagnosed with Crohn’s and that was the end of that dream.

I may do stupid things and make light of them but deep down there’s a reason and I love exploration, even if I cannot fully understand the outcome!
