Trying to breathe



PERSONAL NOTE TODAY ( I was feeling sad and having a hard time breathing) I normaly don't rant and moan except to my loving and wonderful husband.






ASTHMA






What is it?????



Constriction of the air ways due to pollutants which causes swelling of the air ways and creates mucus overload.






That's my take on Asthma






I have had it all of my life. Yeah Lucky me. Lately I have had a very hard time of it. I have been a Medical Assistant since 1989. Now I can't go to work. I can't breathe long enough to last 4 hours at a job. So now we don't have health insurance. I am trying sooooo HARD not to go in the hospital.






My asthma was under control for 18 years now I feel like I am going to die. Just black out and never wake up.



I know there are worse things to have in life. BUT



It is sooo hard to breathe sometimes. Go figure. Most people take it for granted. But I don't.






Just to take a deep breath.



Thats all I want to do.

Don't feel guilty. My husband still smokes. He tryes not too around me. To me smoking is a choice. I really liked to smoke. I did not want to quite.
