    I Have a very hard time breathing when it’s humid;; there are times when I can’t leave my house ; I look fine but am gasping for air.

      Thanks for taking the time to weigh in, @bleuherron. Humidity is definitely problematic for many here, so you’re not alone! I wanted to share this article relating to weather changes: https://asthma.net/living/changing-weather/. I hope you find this helpful. Thanks again for sharing! – Chris, Asthma.net Team Member

      Hi bleuherron and thanks for sharing your experiences of ‘feeling invisible’ with the community. It certainly is understandable how you can be gasping for air and yet it goes unnoticed to those around you. It can be both frustrating and exasperating until you can get your breathing back to a more normal condition. All the best, Leon (site moderator)
