I have asthma.

I was diagnosed by a pulmonologist yesterday.

I think I caught it from my kids. ;-)

gosh, lady. you can't catch a break. i'm sorry. but look at it this way, now you know exactly how your children feel and can help them better when they're sick.
silver lining?

Know what, Kara? There's so much more silver lining that that! I've spent the last three winters coughing until I gag (horrible, gross and embarrassing - esp. at work) and I am so psyched to have medication that will MAKE IT STOP!

So, crazy as it sounds, I'm actually happy to have a diagnosis. Just hope we're able to manage it with the meds I've got.

Best silver lining EVER: Doctor says he expects I'll stop coughing by Saturday. Yay!

First is using herbs. Certain herbs have been established to effectively treat asthma. Herbs are not regulated by the FDA because there is not enough scientific data to establish their safety and effectivity. Nonetheless, many people use herbs to treat asthma. And many people have benefited from these herbs.

Boswellia. Give it a try. Mention it to your Dr, while you are taking your meds.
