Seasonal Asthma Triggers Throughout the Year
Summer is my favorite time of year, yet I am always relieved when it is over. I live at the beach on the southern coast of New Jersey. Summers are hot and humid. My summer routine is filled with checking weather conditions, following air quality reports and managing my health.
Having multiple diagnoses that impact my breathing make my summer days a bit challenging. Because my body works so hard to breathe, I’m often exhausted and run down, making it difficult to be active even on days when the conditions are ideal. Asthma, in particular, casts its heavy shadow over me all summer long. But summer is not the only culprit in my asthma story. As I leave summer behind, I tread forward very cautiously.
