No, that is something luckily no one has.
Saw a programme on it on TV the other night and so many people suffer from it - a nasty disease..

Thankfully no. I was at the hospital emergency one night and lots of people came in for treatment when the weather became cold. I even lost a colleague to this dreaded ailment.
Wow! Even in your climate? That is super scary.

Thank goodness, no. None of my immediate or extended family has it. It's a terrible illness. I would be so worried, especially in Spring when the pollen is about, and when the conditions are right for thunderstorm asthma.
nope
Yes. My daughter has it something awful and I get reactive asthma. Perfumes and rubber set me off really badly. I could never get past the front door of my m-i-l's place as it was so dank and awful . . . I be wheezing in three seconds flat.

Unfortunately Yes. Myself and one my sons. Horrible thing, but luckily there are some fantastic medications that help us keep of top of things.

It kills a LOT more people than you realise and unfortunately many asthmatics are quite blasť about it.
Did you read in the news yesterday about the little boy who "dry" drowned three days after swimming? Omg . . .so awful. I never knew such a fate existed :(((

I hadn't heard about the recent death Rice. But unfortunately it does happen often :( So very sad to think some of these deaths might have been avoided.
Yes a number of relations in my extended family have asthma.

My mother had it severely at times. My sister as well, my son and 2 of our grandchildren. It is terrible to see when they go through a severe attack. My mother and sister ended several times in hospital. Thank goodness my son"s asthma is kept under control with medication as well as our grand children.
My mother suffered from it until the day she died. It puts extra strain on the heart so a strong heart bdcame weakened over many years. My brother also had it. Years ago before the adyhma clinic came into existence, I used to lay awake listening to mum's laboured breathing, waiting for it to stop but knowing if it did, she would be dead. The treatment at that time was adrenaline injections which didn't help the heart. I'd quite often have to bundle her into my car and drive to one of the hospitals and have her put on the respirator. Very scarey times indeed. It took her doctor nearly 20 years to find the appropriate medication to help her but things like cigarette smoke or chimney smoke, cut grass and cold changes would set her off.
Sorry, those misspelled words should be 'became' and 'asthma'. Fingers too big for keyboard.

My husband has bad asthma and since it's hereditary we are waiting to see if our children have it.
There are tests you can do once a child is a certain age, but when we spoke to the Dr about it, she responded that it's near useless to test for because the child has to blow into something and its really hard to make a toddler do that.
Yes, both my husband and my son have asthma.
