Asthma is my downfall
I'm a retired 68 year old man who goes to my doctor regularly. I was born with asthma and while other people with the same disease can cope with it I find I cannot or cannot always cope with it.
I take expensive medicine for it including supposedly very effective inhaled steroids and while they help I still have severe short wind.
I have an epi pen but they are painful and at my age the rise in blood pressure could be deadly.
I just sit down and suffer sometimes. It was worse when I was young but I could cope with it better than I can now.
Anyone else here have this stinking disease?
