I have a unique problem
As a chronic asthmatic whose asthma is hard to control I always gravitated to having other friends with their own problems. The people with chronic debilities of their own.
They tend to have weak hearts, diabetes, diseased livers or some other painful semi debiliting condition.
My two very best friends have pre deceased me. One was a unfortunent man with renal failure. He died shortly after receiving a kidney transplant of a disease that wouldn't even bother anyone else. The other one was a truck driver with a bad heart. He died in 2000. He left a son and a wife behind.
One gy died and I had no idea something was wrong. He had a sudden heart attack and he died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.
Asthma isn't fatal usually if you take the proper precautions.
