I Have Asthma?

I found out almost a year ago that i have asthma. My asthma is triggered by my allergies, but i've had my allergies ever since 8th grade, so for my asthma to come now was kind of a surprise for me.
I woke up one morning, and i had trouble breathing. It wasn't too bad at first, but throughout the day i could tell that something was wrong. My breathing was really wheezy, and i couldn't do pe that day because it was soo bad. I went to the doctor that afternoon, and sure enough, it was asthma. I got two puffers which work great, and I haven't had too many problems with it since.
But since it's triggered by my allergies, i'll only have problems with my asthma during allergy season, which i'm quite thankful for. My asthma also isn't as bad as others have it. For me, it's a gradual thing; i will be able to feel it, slowly but surely, that it's getting harder and harder to breath. Then i'll take my puffers and it's done :)

Not for me, it hits like a ton of bricks. I go from being able to breathe to coughing, gasping and wheezing in seconds.
