I am a 9/11 survivor. I was on wall street that day. Developed bronchitis first night. Spent five years in the hospital. Now I suffer frequent asthma and bronchitis.

    Hi Liberty and welcome. I’m so sorry to hear that tragic day also resulted in you developing both asthma and bronchitis. If there is anything we can assist you with, please let me or any other moderator/team member know. You may not be aware that we have a sister site that deals with COPD – chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Bronchitis falls under that category. You might find that site to be helpful as well. You can register here:
    All the best,
    Leon (site moderator)
