Hi ElizabethAnnie8444 and thanks for your post. Hang in there – it’s not always easy when one’s asthma is so variable and it affects your general health as well. Warmly, Leon (site moderator)
Asthma’s being indecisive and general health too but otherwise it’s been okay today cos of the weather.

Hi @animallover. We are so glad you found our online community! We are all things asthma here. In addition to any advice the community has to offer regarding asthma and diet, I thought these articles would be helpful: https://asthma.net/coping/diet/
I am new to the Asthma world. I’m still trying to figure things out what my triggers are and even what constitutes an asthma attack. I also heard avoiding certain foods and eating certain foods will help. Does anyone have any info on foods, etc. That may help me on this new journey?
Except I can’t afford the medicines. I think I would rather take my chances with the OTC meds. At least I could breath. Medicines can’t save lives if it’s not affordable.
I’m sorry ElizabethAnnie8444! I hope you’ll be feeling well again soon. Is it your asthma acting up? or something else?
I’ll be thinking of you…

I’m feeling a bit off cos of my health right now.
If there is a smoker who’s round I just try to keep out of the end of the house or space or wherever they are and if i can not then i just have to deal with my asthma playing up. It’s someone who’s on parole so it’s a bit hard to just say go get out of my face n stop smoking etc.
