The Emotional Rollercoaster of Being an Asthma Caregiver

Being a caregiver to your loved one living with asthma comes with its own set of challenges. One could be a parent to their child with asthma or one might be the spouse of someone with asthma. Even though the relationships might be different, the frustration, fear, questions, and concerns may be similar. Caring for your loved one suffering from asthma may also lead to emotional and physical impact on the caregivers’ quality of life. The anxiety around your loved one’s future is also a concern, especially, if it’s your child who lives with asthma. We conducted a survey with caregivers of those living with asthma and asked them about the trials and tribulations. Here is what they shared with us.

    Having grown up with Asthma I know the struggles of not being able to breath and I frustration that my mother felt time and time again. Back then it was not considered to remove the harsh toxins from the home such as everyday cleansers, nor was there an alternative. For the past 32 years there has been a company that is developed a 100% non toxic line of products. After removing all the harsh chemicals and house hold cleaners from my home I have found I breathe much easier.
