Ok so here is my story/comment
I was diagnosed with asthma when i was 2 years old, I've had it ever since. I never grew out of it as I was told I could it only became much less frequent but unfortunatly much more severe. It often comes with colds, flu, any sort of lung issues. But I've never considered it very severe.
I'm in nursing school my and as I learn more about the seriouseness of asthma I can think back to all the times I had ignored my asthma, either not taking the drugs on time or at all, or playing some sport that i probly shouldn't (I played rep hockey as a kid, and was the only girl on the guys team, my theory was if i didn't tell my coach i could play, and the body could go 4 minutes without oxigen and a shift on the ice was normally a minute so i'd be good) This hockey theory got my in trouble by my parents and coaches but i saugh it as a pain in the @$$ more than a warning, just hid it better next time. They stopped trusting me with my asthma after i passed out a couple of times either at practice or on the bench after a couple hard shifts.
So this leads me to my question as i learn more about asthma and how seriouse it is are we teaching the patients enough (especially kids) or was a just pig headed? and wouldn't lisen?
