I’m fine and excited to be in this community
That’s great that you feel the improvement. I’ve heard good things about the Breo inhalers, I hope it continues to work well for you. I also hope that the chest infection clears up soon. Wishing you the best.

I love questions like this because I have asthma but I make it a goal to keep active. It’s good to find activities that keep the body strong but keep your asthma under control.
If this is someone you see a future with, then you discuss what you have, and excuse yourself to go to the rest room to use your medication. Say nothing but go somewhere private to use your inhaler. We cannot change people’s prejudice, nor their desire to make fun of “others”…It has become a societal pass time. When I go to the gym,…

Hi Elizabeth and thanks for the reply and explanation. I hope it all works out for you soon. It’s good to hear from you. Regards, Leon
@samueltaylor; I got a Breo inhaler. I only got it a few days ago and it’s improving already as i’ve said already. Better even today. at the moment though it’s a chest infection feeling but it’s still improving i can feel it.
I haven’t had a computer so I had to try when I got something to use in the mean time while I wait for my own to come home.

I like to diffuse a combination of peppermint, eucalyptus and lavender when I go to bed. I feel like I breath better but it easily could just be in my head. I have used some oils that seemed to irritate my breathing and I avoid them. Most smells don’t bother me but some strong perfumes do get me sneezing and stir up my allergies. Your article w…
I want to get more active but have always hated running. I have memories of 8th grade gym class and being forced to run around the baseball fields without resting or walking. I would end up hunched over, struggling to catch my breath and my stomach muscles would hurt really bad. I felt like a wimp since nobody else seemed to have any problems.…
I was diagnosed with asthma about eight months ago. I’ve been bothered by dust (sneezing spells, runny nose, itchy eyes, etc) for years, and now dust is a major asthma trigger for me as well. I can’t sweep, dust or vacuum, or really do anything that stirs up house dust, without setting off my asthma. I’ve started pre-medicating with my reliever…
I was told by my dentist that inhaled steroids can cause cavities and to make sure I rinse my mouth really thoroughly after using it. I’ve also read that oral steroids can cause bone loss, so maybe they could damage teeth as well?
Either way, it sounds like you are doing the best anyone could do especially considering she has other serious health…
It’s good to hear that you are feeling improvement. What type of inhaler did you get? I hope to hear more good news from you soon.

Hi Heather and thanks for your post. We appreciate you sharing your current situation with asthma and your work environment. It does sound like you have been able to bring this under a certain level of control for your condition in this (work) environment. It’s also good to hear you’ve been able to share (with your employer) about your condition…
