Instagram – Confirmed today. Childhood asthma has come back to haunt me on a daily basis now. My poor lungs have developed chronic asthma, though not serious, still dehabilitating. Even on medication today I’m at least 50-100 short of normal. No wonder hiking steeper elevations have been frustrating and exhausting to say the least. Without medication I only had maybe 60% of my normal air intake capacity, and now this has been my reality for this while spring/summer. Poor air quality have certainly made it worse. I tend to avoid medication unless necessary, but with this, it seems to be necessary now. Hope I can get rid of the chronic inflammation and rebuild its strength!
