I have yet another case of bronchial asthma. I only get it when sick with a cold/flu. I got a sore throat a couple days ago, and it turned into a cold. I have been using inhalors, vaporizers. I am so short of breath, its unreal. Went to the doc today and he prescribed steroids, a new med called simulair, biaxin for infection. I also use advair daily. I notice I get more and more colds/bronchial probs lately. It takes so long to get over. Its why I lost my last job, was off two weeks sick. I was just sick in November with the same darn thing. My battle with quitting smoking isnt hard at all anymore. While in the waiting room at the docs, a lady with a oxygen tank next to her, wheezing, it really hit home. I do not want to be like that. The doc told me that she is a longtime smoker. Even though I have suffered from this medical problem since a child. I know that smoking isnt helping it none, and will quit it.
