Julie.. I am an asthmatic. And one lung only works at 1/3 capacity. Allergies, change of seasons, cold weather, hot weather etc. can cause me to grab my inhaler. Right now I traveled up to North Dakota from Arkansas. Weather's colder and daughter has cats. So until I get used to being around pets again my inhaler away will be my friend.

I hope you are feeling better. (((Gentle hugs)))

Julie - just wondering what causes your breathing problems? Is it from a diagnosis you have or could a medication be contributing to it? Reason I asked is because for me Neurontin did that. In fact there were a few times it caused me to black out. I know several prescription meds can cause breathing problems.
