This week I'm starting a whole new thread to welcome the folks who've joined us the last part of April and this first week of May — it's Asthma Awareness Month, so I'm really hoping we can spread awareness to our friends, neighbors and co-workers! By being a part of our asthma community, we can educate and support one another.
Join me in welcoming our new community members so that they don't feel lost in the crowd.We're glad you found us and look forward to getting to know you.
I'm Cynthia — or K8sMom2002. I've been diagnosed with asthma since my early 30s, and it was a rude surprise to me. My DD, who is 15, also has asthma and was diagnosed when she was a toddler. My triggers include tobacco smoke, perfumes and strong odors and grasses and hay, as well as any sort of cold or upper respiratory infection. My DD's triggers are pollen and grass related, along with tobacco smoke and colds and upper respiratory infections.
Let's give a big welcome to …
