It’s interesting that you say it’s got worse since your step dad’s sad diagnosis. Maybe anxiety is playing a part in your asthma - it certainly does mine. I overfocus on my breathing when it’s bad as I am so worried and end up making it worse by almost causing a panic attack. I would speak to your asthma nurse about your concerns and your family situation. Meditation doesn’t work for me when my breathing is bad - the last thing I need to focus on is my breathing lol. I have found distracting myself with something really engaging like a good book or music makes a difference

I have spent years trying to understand my triggers - and I still don’t fully, for me it just depends how calm my lungs are at the time. Focus on ensuring you’re on the right meds. Get your thoughts under control and go and enjoy the concert x
