How do you handle a flare up or exacerbation?
It's that time of year when the "bugs" come out – colds, flu, bronchitis -too many to mention. With lungs damaged by MAC and/or Bronchiectasis, getting sick is always scary because of the danger of all our symptoms flaring, or getting a new infection.
What precautions do you take as the "sick season" approaches?
What do you do when you feel a cold or other illness coming on? Do you make any changes in your airway clearances, diet or activities?
What do you do when you actually become ill? Do you have a routine or plan with your doc as to when to "wait it out" and when to call them?
Let's hear how everyone manages, please?
