As I mentioned before I don't have a formal asthma diagnosis (yet?) but I had a couple of questions about quality of life anyway.
I'm a practicing Buddhist and I've pretty much given up my practice since this started. I don't got to temple any more because of the incense. And I'm learning to hate meditation because it's all about focusing on the breath. That's the LAST thing I want to do right now. My temple has separate rooms where I could worship by myself without incense, but that doesn't seem like much fun … and what about the meditation itself?
Does anyone else here meditate? Can you suggest anything else to focus on? I hate to give up my practice entirely, but right now the traditional way (Zen for me) is just out of the question.
