WILDFLOWERS IN A FIELD

FOTD – June 10 – Wildflowers in a field next to my doctor’s office

The whole breathing thing or lack thereof is getting to me, so today was “annual visit to the doctor” day. He listened to my chest, couldn’t hear anything but wheezing and we had to make plans to find some kind of medication I could afford that might help me.

I think these are wild asters. They look like asters and are so bright!

I think we have done that but it is going to take a few weeks before we’ll see how well the medication is working and how well the medication gets along with all the other stuff I already take. One medication should reduce the symptoms and the other, if it works, might actually start to fix the problem. It is a complicated medication and it has a tendency to make crazy people crazier. I think I’m about to find out just HOW crazy I can get. If in the end, I can breathe, it will have been worth it.

Big white flowers. This might not be a wild bush but be a “transplant” via wind or bird from a garden
Really pretty spiderwort

Meanwhile, I got a nice big shot of steroids to see if I could be made to feel better right now — and maybe get a night’s sleep.

Wild aster or wild daisies. Dainty and perfect

Thus I was out in the parking lot and I hadn’t brought a camera. Garry had the little Leica, so I borrowed it and took some wildflower pictures. I have a few more to process but I’m trying not to run everything all in one post.

    • They are really pretty and they bloom for a long time, too. The only thing I can’t figure out is that they are very deep blue, but in photographs — ALL my cameras show the same thing and I have to adjust the colors each time — they come out a deep mauve/purple color. No other flower does this, so there must be a secondary color under the blue — purple maybe? Have you ever had this happen? I’ve shot a lot of pink, purple, mauve, blue flowers and they all came out more or less the same color you see with your eyes, but not the spiderwort. Just odd — but there has to be a reason why the color always comes out different in photographs.

    • I actually feel a little better this morning. The big question has been IF this medication will work. One of the meds is supposed to reduce the asthma by reducing the substance that causes it. The inhalation is just for relief, but this is supposed to possibly cure it, at least minimize it. I have my fingers crossed!

    • The bizarre thing is I’m not sick. It’s not like having a virus or bacterial infection. I’ve always had a wheeze since I was a child. It has gotten worse as I’ve gotten older and living in the middle of an oak woods probably doesn’t help. Nor does all the dog hair help.

      Meanwhile, they’ve made the medications so expensive i can’t afford them. It’s not going to kill me. it does, however, make everything harder because even a little bit of effort makes me cough and the wheezing is so loud, it wakes the dog up — and he is a sound sleeper.

      A LOT of people have asthma. Actually, I think more people I know have it than don’t have it and it is easily controlled except for the raised cost of medication to ridiculous rates that those of us on Medicare can’t afford.

      • I’m sorry for your condition, Marilyn. I eat dandelion vegetable almost everyday, it helps me a lot. Open PC type Dandelion search and read the information about dandelion. If you trust the information try it, Marilyn, dandelion is good medicine, it can cure cancer. I hope you like it.

        • I tried my own dandelions and they were very bitter. I think you need the right kind of dandelions and I suspect you have to pick the leaves when they are very young. I believe in natural cures, but I also believe in medicine. Two of my favorite cures for many problems are heat and ice. It doesn’t get more basic than that.
