    Recently Diagnosed

    I've recently been diagnosed with asthma. I noticed last year that after I had bronchitis, it became harder and harder to get air in and I had this persistent cough that wouldn't go away. I initially just thought I had bad allergies but once I took a PFT last week, I was told that I had the lungs of a 47 year old. I was shocked! I am now on an inhaler that I have to use everyday as well as nebulizer. I have my rescue inhaler just in case I need it as well. I'm trying my best to wrap my head around all of this, but it's hard. It sucks when you can't breathe.
