I never had asthma growing up. I had my first attack in college, and it's progressively gotten worse. I'm now taking Advair (the purple disc) every morning to keep everything at bay, although I forgot to take it today. I never realized how much I needed it, but I've been coughing all day and feel crazy stuffed up, almost like I have a cold.

Anyone else deal with this crap? Is there anything you do to help control it without the use of meds?

sounds like me... my asthma was induced by allergies, if my allergies are under control i have no problems, if my allergies flair up then i have issues...

it sucks... even better is the most effective allergy medicine for me makes me drowsy so every day i have the dilemma of feeling sleepy with allergies under control or allergies hating me and awake

I feel like I'm allergic to everything. It started with cats about 10 years ago, I got crazy hives on my face and neck and eventually my throat closed up. Now in addition, I'm allergic to pollen and dust mostly. I have 3 more hours at work and I'm not sure if I can wait, I'm literally starting to feel lightheaded because I'm not getting enough air.

I <3 breathing, I want to keep doing it!

You guys exercise at all to help? I did the treadmill for a while, but I'm not trying to lose weight so I had to keep my heart rate up -- but that, in turn, made it harder to breathe. fml.

I had it really bad when I was a kid. I found out I had asthma when I was playing soccer and my coach sent me home because he could hear me weazing across the field.
