Need your advice here. Was diagnosed last winter (the season Patrick Cooper broke down) and felt the first issues in a while tonight. Played soccer here, had legs for miles, ran out of air after half an hour, hurled behind some trees to clear the pipes enough, headed home, took a hit on the inhaler, took a shower, breathed. I’m very frustrated at all this. I thank the Salzburg Parks Dept. for the groves of trees and apologize.
Having come to diagnosis later than most folks, I missed the whole conversation of tips and tricks that people had on rec soccer, church basketball and Little League teams. The halfway funny thing: Didn’t have great lungs at that point, but I figured I was just out of shape. With serious practices twice a week in all three of those sports for years, the only thing actually out of shape was probably my brain.
So, asthmatic friends (I just learned how to spell “asthmatic”), have any good tips? Comment, e-mail, whatever. All appreciated, thanks.
