Not Bad Anymore

i was first told i had asthma when i was seven, and for several years after that i would have mild asthma attacks from time to time. whenever i got a cold, i had a lot of difficulty breathing, and got winded after small amounts of physical activity. now, it's not nearly as bad. i haven't had an asthma attack in ages, and i don't get breathless as easily as i used to. the only time i really feel it is if i get a nasty cold. other than that, it doesn't bother me too much. i still keep my inhaler on hand and take it with me when i'm running, just in case.

Oh yeah - I have asthma too. You are right about the cold thing - if I can keep it out of my chest, I am ok. Cold weather - allergies are really bad for me.

my brothes both have asthma and the youngest had it very bad!
