The doctors who diagnosed me with asthma were emergency-room staff. I believe one stressed the importance of following up with a visit to my regular doctor. My asthma was usually mild, allowing me to brush it off most of the time, so I never followed through.
The wildfire smoke of the past few summers brought the fact that I have asthma powerfully to my attention. Now I had questions. I learned that having an asthma plan can be life-saving. Also, I needed to manage my asthma. I do this by natural means and avoid taking a ton of pharmacueticals.
I'm still learning how to take care of my health. What do you do, besides taking medicine, to manage your asthma?
