just got back from having a complete lung function test done at Burnaby Hospital.
the fev1 [ Forced Expressed Volume in 1 second ] from the first one was 29, today it was 38.
a 900 Milliliter increase in air flow.
seems the puffers have had a dramatic effect :)

edit to add:

of course, the inhaled steroids have a side effect of trashing my voice.
but sounding like I have a bad cold/sore throat is an acceptable tradeoff for easier breathing.

Just tell everyone you're related to Lauren Bacall. That's what I do when I have throat issues. Or tell everyone that you ran into a burning building to rescue a kitten. The point is to change up the story every time, making it more and more unbelieveable. Think of it as a social experiment to track the gullibility of society as a whole.
