Sometimes we know our asthma and allergies so well that it’s hard to think about it from another person’s perspective. But helping other people understand what our asthma and allergies are like can make a big difference in our day to day lives.
Sometimes, too, all people can see about us is our limits — we become the inhaler girl, or the allergy guy, or the one who can’t run, or the one who throws a fit about cigarette smoke or pet dander. But we’re more than that — we are absolutely more than that. We try to live a normal life, even with diseases like asthma and allergies.

How will you share one fact or aspect about asthma and allergies during May, Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month? How are you more than asthma or allergies?
