Before, I needed a regular inhaler I had to take every day on top of my rescue inhaler. I had to take regular breathing tests every three months when I was a teenager. It sucked but I got through it and luckily, I haven’t needed to have breathing tests anymore. I think moving from Ohio to California is a big reason why my asthma improved and I am thankful for the move. I remember my asthma used to keep me up at night because it became hard to breathe.
I am just so lucky it never got to the point of having to go to the hospital. I am so thankful to God. My family has been supporting me and my dad takes me to my doctor’s appointments. I do believe though that having asthma has made it harder for me to lose weight. I remember learning about asthma through watching Arthur as a kid. He got it and it was before I realized I had it too. I am so glad I learned about asthma through the movie because it helped me not to be scared and deal with it.
