It was lovely tonight to have some normality. You may think it very odd to be writing a post about being out on saturday night but it was a big deal for me. I still ended up in bed by quarter past ten but have been out since 6pm. I feel really good that I managed it.
It was the Lacrosse Scotland fundraiser for their tour to America. They put on a pub quiz and a raffle. It was great fun. We at Capital Lacrosse Club have a few people who are in the squad going to America on the tour so it is great to support them. It was even better because I was able to put all the useless knowledge I seem to store to good use. Our team the “Astro Burns” (we, well our club train on astro) came in first place!!! A tin of biscuits and 2 bottles of wine to the good. It was a great laugh.
The team probably don’t realise just how much of a big deal it was for me. It is the first time in ages I have actually been out. I find my asthma gets worse at night and as I normally am doing things in the day by the time night comes I am so exhausted I just want to flop. So instead today I had a peaceful day so I would be good for tonight and I am so glad I did.
In preparation I had a few nebs during the day and one just before I left to make sure I didnt get wheezy as I knew I would be around strong perfumes, people smoking outside and a dusty pub too. I am glad I did all that. It sounds way over board but I would rather be over prepared than under and have to go home early.
I hope now that I have managed to do that I will be able to do more as I know I can do things in the evenings without having to leave too early.
I have a busy few days coming up. It is my birthday on monday so sunday I am out for lunch with family and then dinner on monday with the other side of my family!!!
