My asthma story

I am now 69 years old. I got my first attack of asthma at the age 14 (ie 1963) in small hours of 2 or 3 am. The suffering was completely new and terrorised me.

    Hi KIA and thanks for your post. It’s good that you were able to identify the ‘trigger’ back then at the age of 14. Do you feel your asthma is under better control now? We’ll look forward to your continuation… All the best, Leon (site moderator)
