I am glad to see that you're trying to quit smoking no judgment here but support. But a little history about me I have had asthma all my life I am 50 it has gotten worse in the last 3-4 years I had to stop working due to I can't be around bleach ,lysol, cimical cleaners, perfume, smoke, I am allergic to dust mights and have to leave the house is someone vacuums fro me dust or put on a mask with filters. I had a test done that shows what meddles I react to so I am having a lot of work done on my teeth by having the medal fillings removed and replaced with porcelain fillings and ;my teeth fixed I praying that it helps what has been happening to me. The Doctors have no Idea what is going on. I was even sent to Swedish hospital in Seattle Wa for a procedure called bronchial thermolplasty but was turned down due to test being inconclusive . I am on the highest amount of meeds as they can give get off prednisone one day and end right back on So I am going this new rout myself it wont take my asthma away but can make it a lot better I start the process the end of may I can't want. I will be praying for strength as you go through this prosesView Thread

I got so irritated the other day it was the day before our thanksgiving haliday and went shoping and a person was smokilng by where we parked covered my mouth and hired to go in to the store but some person was smoking by the enterance and I had to hurry by them too and it made my lungs burn I had to take my inhaler right away got what I could then had to go home so my husbond had to do the rest of the shoping bless his heart. I am still wanting on the doctors in seatle to let me know if and when I do have a sister that live about 2 hours away from Seattle where I will have it done so I will be able to stay with her.

on the 8th of Nov I will be seeing the specialist about having the Bronchial Thermoplasty done they will do a lung function test and meet with the specialist I hope they approve and I can get it done I am on all the meds they can give me. It would be great to be able to get off all the meds (even if it is one or two ) I would be so happy and not have to worry about going to church or anywhere with out worrying about having an asthma attack.View Thread

I just want to have it done and over and go on with out reacting to so many things I had to quite my job I worked with children I loved it but around the bleach and lysol and peoples perfume it limits what I can do right now. It is hard to even go to church. I have been in the hospital 4 times this year.View Thread
