Well, to describe the first episode of my attack I would have to say shocking. I was at my brother’s girlfriend’s house. We were all just chilling. So before we knew it was time for bed.

I slept in the lounging area. I couldn’t sleep for anything because of chest pains. I started coughing which made my chest hurt even worse. I then knew I had asthma. I went to the fire department to receive a breathing treatment.
That’s when I found out. The next time I had an attack was at my grandma’s house, we were all gathered for Christmas. We ate and had a good time all day. It happened when I started moving a lot.
I began to breathe differently and I knew it was asthma. I tried to control it by avoiding conversation, but my family was everywhere.
So I just tried to relax and it did not work. I eventually was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance where I received some steroids multiple breathing treatments.
After that time I started using an inhaler. It’s crazy because I didn’t have it growing up. I played football all four years an high school. I also played a little college.
I remember having a minor episode in college. I just didn’t claim asthma. But it’s my life and I must continue to treat myself if I want to live.
