A couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with asthma. For the most part, it does not cause me much of a problem. But today, I had spent the morning working at the Scott County Courthouse. On my way home, a VERY serious asthma attack happened to me on the highway between Modoc and Marienthal. All of a sudden, I had absolutely NO air. To say that I was terrified would be a definite understatement. To make matters even worse, I had just run out of my emergency inhalers a few days ago. I admit that I kinda lost it. I hit the brakes and pretty much came to a halt right there on the highway. Fortunately, no one was coming from behind me.
I considered dialing 9-1-1 but realized that that would be senseless considering the fact that I was calling on my cellphone and was unable to breathe--let alone talk. I didn't figure that the dispatcher would know who was using my cellphone or where I was located.
Just then, I saw Melodee coming towards me in her car. As soon as she realized that my van was not moving very quickly, she turned around to see if I needed assistance. You have absolutely NOOO idea just how much better I felt knowing that Melodee was there to help me!!! Eventually, I was able to breathe normally again. The chest pain is all but completely gone now.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that Melodee is my heroine!!!
Thank you, Melodee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
