Thanks for your reply, Joy. I had cats when I was little but they were never in my bedroom. My asthma delveloped badly in my 20s when I got 2 Siamese cats. We had to give them up and that broke my heart but I knew that I could have dogs that didn't shed so I have had poodles all my adult life. Ramone is my 4th one. I really think the dander was the cause of my attack as I got sick so soon after.
Thanks, Chartreux, I am doing much better today. Had a good day yesterday too. Today is the first day not taking the prednisone and boy do I feel much calmer and able to relax. I am still using my inhalers but don't need albuterol as much which is great and I am able to breathe pretty well. Hope it keeps up. I just can't spend much time outside because of the high mold. I got out yesterday to do some things I enjoy, like bookstore and a specialty gourmet shop. I felt like a part of the world again and the living. I hope this control will last. I got my air purifier going again in my bedroom and I think that is helping a lot. Thanks for asking about me.
