My antibiotics again - really? face😐

Really hoped I could avoid another round of oral antibiotics until my next course of IVs but my lungs weren't convinced of waiting any longer.

It's a love-hate relationship between me and these little pills - being together is complicated but it seems we just can't take a break from each other.
Since the last round of IVs I've already been struggling more with nausea than usual.
(my personal antinausea top3 beside meds: #1 lemons 🍋 #2 radicchio 🌱(anything with bitters) #3 ginger🍠 what's yours?) Now with more antibiotics it has become even worse and every meal I have to force myself to eat at all. In addition to all the stuff that's going on lungwise the last few weeks have been exhausting.
It's tiring and frustrating but since there is no way out, let's do this.

I love you ❤️

I don't talk about my life much before I started working in the laboratory but in a nutshell I got pregnant in high school, dropped out and went to cosmetology school. I worked as a nail technician 2 years before I started college. While I was in this field I saw some funky looking hair, skin and nails which is what partially started peaking my interest in pathology.
I saw nails like this, and I was very interested to learn in school that fingernails can be a sign or someone's underlying health condition. This is called finger clubbing, and is commonly associated with diseases of the lung (such as lung cancer) and cardiac disease. It can totally be seen as just an idiopathic finding or one that happens for no reason without any underlying disease.
Some patients that have clubbing may not even notice because it occurs slowly over time. It is not really known why these patients get clubbing but studies have shown there is an increase of blood flow in the distal portion of the fingertips which may be a contributing cause.

Each year, more than 4,000 people race up 94 floors at #HustleUpTheHancock to raise funds for #lungdisease research. The #NorthwesternMed team, pictured here, had an average time 20:81. Way to go!

Climbing Huascaran was really emotional for me. I was born with a chronic lung disease called Bronchiectasis, and have only 4 lobes instead 5 to my lungs. I've had pulmonologists in the past tell me I wouldn't ever be able to handle high altitude climbing. I wrote up a story on medium where you can read about our climb and how fulfilling this was for me.

In 2010 I had a lung biopsy done and I was diagnosed with Interstitial Lung Disease, due to this development my physical activities are cut down to a minimum if not any because my lungs develop so much phlegm which clogs up my airways, I have too clear it out in order to breathe regularly. I've been on Prednisone ever since & even been through some Chemo Medicine, But w/ the Grace of God I'm very hopeful that I will overcome it.. #intersistiallungdisease #lungdisease #spoonieb

Sodium chloride is a common medication for #CF that is inhaled through a nebulizer. So essentially it is like breathing in salt air, the reason it works is because it increases the amount of sodium in the airways. The salt attracts water into the airways, which thins my normally sticky mucus, allowing me to easily cough it out and any bacteria that is stuck in my lungs with it. Now it comes in varying percentages and I have normally been on an easy 3% because of living by the beach.
.

After moving my doctors and I agreed without the salt air in my environment I should increase my percentage of sodium chloride to 7%. The issue with this is that EVERY time I have used it in the path my normally raspy voice has turned into the voice of a 90 year old smoker and no one can even understand me 😅 .
.
This morning I have a question for my fellow #cysticfibrosis community to see what tips and tricks they have for inhaling 7% so that I don't end up sounding like an avid smoker who spent the whole weekend screaming or feeling like a cat scratched the inside of my throats all night. I would love any suggestions, there's always more to be learned about #CFlife!!! 💜💜

According to the Minnesota Department of Health, nearly half of Minnesota high school smokers use menthol. You can help stop this! Contact local officials and tell them to support an ordinance that would restrict these products to adult only shops.⠀
