Many thanks to whoever keeps the Know Your Asthma Zones chart on the side of the web pages

Many thanks for keeping the Know Your Asthma Zones chart on the side of the web pages.  It is such a good reminder and easy to look at to check how I am doing any time.  

Thank you!!

    Pretty much have been in the orange zone the whole time I have had asthma but it is a very good reminder to pay attention to things that we become accustomed to as normal even when they are not normal.

    Thanks for that feedback Lisa! It's always great to hear what resources work for people…and likewise, what ones don't so we can improve them.

    Lisa, we can be the frog in the increasingly hotter water … so glad you are getting the benefit of this!

    One thing that my doc has stressed with me: if I'm in the yellow zone, and I've taken my meds and I've followed my plan, and yet I'm STILL not better … then that means I'm actually in the red zone, even if I'm no worse.

    Cynthia,  Hadn't really looked at it that way but it makes sense.  Sometimes I forget that bit of wisdom.  Thank you for always keeping us grounded in facts.    Guess we make up our own "facts" to fit our particular situations!  Not a good thing to do with asthma!  

    Always like that "frog in increasingly hotter water" one!  That chest tightness sure can creep up on a body.
