This forum is a new topic on our support forums about tips to control emotional responses. Asthma is often trigged through stirred emotions. When I was younger I lived in a home of domestic violence and seeing my family member beat repeatedly would send me into an attack. Little did I know that the emotional trigger would be a life long struggle for me but I have gained better control and want to share with others what has worked for me.
" I assess the situation and see if there is anything I can do to change it or come out with a winning solution. If not, I tell myself it's not worth the emotional charge–I quickly diffuse any situation that can get out of hand by either apologizing sincerely or speaking my mind tactfully. I don't hold anything in and learned I take control or power over situations".
— Please share what works for you to keep emotions in check?
