I Am Having Problems Breathing

    I'm having breathing difficulties.

    I would ask to go to a doctor but this is much cheaper for my familia. If my chest hurts when I breathe, am I dying? Give it to me straight..

    Asthma and Pneumonia

     Those two don't really mix to good. I did have bronchitis was taking an antibiotic. That really didn't work. It sucks though. I hate it. I feel so horrible. Very weak and I hate it.. Boo to asthma and the pneumonia.

    Why?!

    right now it is really hard to breathe. I feel like i can't inhale enough oxygen. It is so frustrating. I don't know what i can really do. It feels like a huge strain to take in air.
