Having chronic asthma and getting old
Asthma is a debilitating disease that holds you back from a lot of things. Sports and other activities. I'm what doctors diagnose as a lung cripple.
Asthma can be fatal but it usually isn't. I'll be seventy my next birthday.
To date, I've watched six friends die usually of heart disease. My blood pressure is normal. The people I've seen die worked out with weights didn't smoke and either didn't drink or drank lightly.
I never exercise and I do drink a bit.
