I live in Florida and I dont know if anyone heard about the Bugaboo fire here last year well i lived in the county that it did the most damage in. Well its that season again and the same forest is on fire again. Hopefully it wont get as out of hand as it did last year. My asthma is gonna be so bad if it gets out of hand again. Last year was horrible...i couldnt step out side b/.c the smoke was so looked like 8 in the evening when it was only like noon and it was raining ashes. So if anyone lives in Florida...good luck b/c the fires are starting back up again.

Don't say that too me.  My Puminologist has increased my Inhaler usage to four times per day.

My lungs almost always feel tight since Spring Started.

The doctor said it is too keep my bronchial tubes open.

Good Morning,

I have read about the forest fires too.  I am sorry as I know all the smoke and ash are bad for you.

I would certainly check with your physicians and have a rescue plan in place should you get into trouble through this tough time. 

macrip3, IMHO I think your physician did the right thing in increasing your frequency on your inhaler. 

Hugs to each of you
