I hate stairs.

Today I was helping carry things down our basement stairs after we cleaned up from flooding. Up and down two times was enough to make me need to rest and catch my breath. I'm so frustrated. My sister and mom both have asthma too and they don't need to rest nearly as often and I'm getting really frustrated and worried. My dorm for college is on the third floor and I wonder how I'm going to do that day in and day out! Sometimes I feel like I'm just being a baby but it's hard not to think that when I seem to have to rest constantly just to get my breath back.

Thanks for listening sorry I ranted...

I'm seeing my doctor soon. I think Friday before I leave for college. I always have my inhaler but it seems like my inhaler I take daily isn't helping. I used to take Advair and I think that was better though I don't know. I'll ask my doctor about what she thinks.

Thanks for the advice Smile

I'm doing better with stairs. Until 3 weeks ago I lived in the city and now I live in a small town where the air is much cleaner and my asthma is easier to manage. I do still have to climb three flights of stairs to get to my dorm but that gets easier with time. Thanks for the support.
