If you are new to asthma, you may be a little unsure about what exactly asthma is, why you are only just being diagnosed with it and confused by the different inhalers your doctor has prescribed. If you are a lifelong asthma sufferer as a kid your mum may have nagged you to take your inhaler every morning and to keep track of your peak flow. However, now you don’t really bother with your daily inhaler and depend on your rescue inhaler if you need it. You’re busy worrying about other things and it’s difficult to keep track of taking it every day (especially while you’re also trying to remember what hall that hot girl said she lived in). However, you may be leading yourself into trouble in the not too distant future and it would be bummer if an asthma hit as you climbed up the four floors to her room. This page discusses what asthma is, the importance of managing it properly and the different inhalers and treatments that will help you do just that. There’s no reason not to live normal everyday life like your mates, playing sports, chasing girls and partying the night away, just make sure you look after yourself in the process.
