I get the same reaction if I use my nebulizer in the kitchen!
To Jennifer (jr2366) – I know you were asking Sue how she adjusted but i thought I’d add my experience. I found the first few days/weeks to be the most challenging, in adjusting to airway clearance taking up to an hour in the morning and in the evening (after I decided to do it twice a day). I’ve come to accept that this will be a part of my life and I’d rather do this than be on medication again; I was on the Big 3 for 6 months before I developed tinnitus and lost hearing in my right ear. After hearing about other people’s experience, I am grateful to be able to manage with just this twice daily imposition to my day.
I hope you will find this forum as helpful as I have as the information and support make this disease a little more tolerable.
