I’m giving this up. It’s been on my list for about as long as I’ve been on this site. I am managing my asthma as best as I can imagine is possible, and that’s going to have to be good enough. I will continue seeking medical treatment as needed for flareups and pursuing medications that may alleviate my asthma symptoms, but this goal’s existence is nearly pointless at this time. 3 weeks ago

I’m on a daily asthma med, a daily allergy med, and I have an emergency inhaler. I still find myself missing work due to lower respiratory problems, either caused or exacerbated by my asthma, much to my dismay. I am hopeful that my upcoming move will have a positive effect on my allergies and therefore my asthma, but right now, I’m wondering if I’ll ever truly have control over these breathing problems. 4 weeks ago
At my doctor’s recommendation, I have gotten a peak flow meter, started taking a daily asthma medication in addition to keeping my inhaler on hand, and today I got around to starting the log she wants me to keep regarding my peak flow measurements. This should help me understand my asthma better and be more proactive in treating symptoms.
Super sexy stuff, I know. I’ll never get healthy again if I can’t breathe well, though, so I have to keep this in mind as part of a bigger picture. 3 months ago
If anything, my asthma’s gotten worse. I stayed home from work today for what I found out was an asthma thing. Frustrating. 3 months ago
I’m sick of constantly feeling wheezy. I’m going to try taking both of my inhalers twice a day from now on. 9 months ago
I am going to try the Buteyko method, which claims that asthma can be healed by breathing less. According to Wikipedia this is supported by medical studies. I am going to try this and see for myself if it works, because it really bugs me to be practically addicted to that blue companion in my pockets. Wish me best of luck.
By the way, I think it is really dumb that there are so many asthma groups here. All those people could really benefit from each other in one large group. 13 months ago
