I sat around a campfire last night for about three hours. It's the first time I've been around a campfire since I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis. I coughed a good bit during the evening, but I thought I would be fine. I came home, used my nebulizer and went to bed.
I coughed hard for an hour and a half before finally being able to stop. I was also somewhat short of breath. As this is something I have always enjoyed I don't want to want to miss out. I only attend occasionally, but I won't be attending again unless I have an idea how to avoid the coughing and shortness of breath. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate hearing them. I'm still short of breath and coughing 12 hours later. The cough is not as gut wrenching, thank goodness.
