I am going to try your breathing techniques...it couldn't hurt, right?
So, that's kind of neat, you being the bread winner. I suppose nowadays it shouldn't be but in my world I don't here about it happening a lot.
I am originally from southern Canada but have been living in the Arctic circle for a while now. The truly nice part about living here is that life is very laid back. We could own a vehicle if we wanted to but if we needed to get anything the store is literally right across the road from us, same with the gas station, and the post office, it also has hardware, clothing appliances especially, furniture. ..not like a huge selection like the south. More advantageous to own a Skidoo, ATV, and boat. So, the stress of traffic, running around and shopping, and all of that is gone...very relaxing when you are exhausted and you don't want to always say "no" to family and friends that want to visit or go for lunch. I don't know about anybody else but I would always push myself to do whatever I could even if it meant coming home and being so ill for the next 3 to 4 days. This time with my flare, it is so much worse...I couldn't even if I wanted to, I would be scared to be down south...I'm afraid I would try anyways. Why do we knowingly do this to ourselves?
Has anyone else here had more than one flare?
