Asthma is unique … no two people have exactly the same experience with it, which means that it's often hard for others to know exactly what we're going through.
For some people, asthma's the "oh, I have to use my inhaler on occasion."
For others, it's, "my inhaler's my lifeline."
For me, asthma's like breathing through a pillow filled with feathers. It means not opening the windows on beautiful spring days. It means holding my breath when I go down the cleaning aisle. It means reaching for my inhaler when I see someone lighting up.
What is YOUR asthma like? How do you describe it to your doctor? To your family? to your friends and co-workers?
