My First Ever Asthma Attack

I never had asthma, so when I couldn’t take in a full breath I started to freak out.  This all happened about two in the morning and WifeGeeding sensing a good blogging opportunity decided to snap this pic with her camera phone.


I was told that even though I have never had a case of asthma in the past, as we age our body changes and we can develop asthma as well as allergies to things we never had a reaction to before.  Wow, talk about something I’ve taken for granted for the past 32 years.  Now I have two inhalers.  One to take to help me for the long term, and one to take when I start to feel really bad.  Right now I’m breathing better, but I still don’t quite feel I’m getting a full breath no matter how much I breath in.  Hopefully I won’t have to be dependent on an inhaler for much longer.

    Similar thing happened to me, but did not last. I used the asthma meds for a couple of years (as needed, not constantly) but found that I no longer needed them. It has been about 5 yrs since I had a need for any prescription inhalant.

    Good luck Keith. My old running buddy had asthma. She ran a complete marathon with me so hopefully it never limits you.

    You couldn't just get the flu like everybody else???

    Hey, I'll keep you in my prayers. And no, I will not be bidding on your hospital gown.

    I “echo” DB….I, too, developed the symptons and malady well into my adult life. A few years of using the inhaler and now all of that is but a memory!! But………..allergies present themselves when THEY feel like it, not always when we are expecting them!!

    Get better soon!

    Good heavens! Hope this is transient phenomenon. Maybe it’s all that bacon you’ve been rhapsodizing over/ingesting/inhaling fumes from.. Seriously, be well, friend.
