Well done! Color me impressed that you run given your asthma. I had a nephew (through marriage) who had asthma and any physical exertion was very difficult for the boy, so I know a bit about how "life" can be in dealing with it. The fact that you've improved, through your determination and effort, to the point of going off the albuterol is doubly impressive. You totally deserve to be happy today...you've earned it.
We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder.We always have the choice.
That is such great news Damaris. Most people would have just taken the easy road and quit running. I swear you ran more.
Just curious...are you on any other meds besides albuterol? I take Serevent and Qvar (steroid) daily, and I only use albuterol as my emergency inhaler (I usually only need it when it is windy and dusty, or when I have a cold). I used to weeze walking to the 7-11 but I now have lungs of steel.
Congratulations! That'll keep my running for a while.
Yay!! That is great news!

Wow, congrats! Awesome news
I pick things up and put them down, and when I'm not broken I run.
Great news D. The fewer med's you take the better. Do you think your running has actually helped, by putting you in better shape to takle the asthma as opposed to those who are sedentary?
