I have always suffered from dust, smoke and had reaction to paint, perfume and aerosols, but I was living abroad and so it was not diagnosed as asthma. However, 20 years ago, I was then in my forties, they discovered that I suffered asthma. I know that I cannot have a cat or cat hairs, I avoid any smoke, have to avoid any painting areas, need to vacuum daily as the house we rent is carpetted. But to be able to breathe is worth the trouble. I do yoga and swimming as I find it helps my breathing and somehow the moisture makes it better. Like August, I do like gardening so can suffer with that as well, we also live rurally and hayfever with streaming nose and wheezing becomes a problem. Hey ho such is life!
