Hang in there and it will get better. I have days like that as well and it's so frustrating. Good luck to you and wish you all the best in reaching those weight loss goals.

I am new to Spark and was all excited about getting back to a healthy lifestyle (and losing weight), but returned from vacation with strep which ended up in my lungs. Of course, everything I get ends up in my lungs. Grrr. I went to the gym yesterday and could not even walk fast enough on the elliptical to get the stats to show up ("Walk Faster"? Are you kidding me?! So sad!)

I am a coughing asthmatic. That's a lot of fun. I have never smoked but sounds as if I've been smoking 2 packs a day for 30 years. :-/

People sympathize, but I don't think anyone who doesn't have asthma understands the terror of not being able to breathe or the total and utter exhaustion on bad days.

Triggers are stress (good thing I'm a corporate lawyer, cuz that's not stressful or anything), cigarette smoke (bad bad bad!), humidity, spring pollens, and getting sick. Bah!

I find yoga incredibly helpful for my lung capacity when I get off my rear and do it. Too bad I am lazy!

I hate hate hate my rescue inhaler, so I try to avoid taking it as long as possible. Probably not the smartest. :-p

Anyway, the last few days have been pretty bad and I found this team and thought you all would understand the exhaustion, feeling like suffocating, and the depression associated with the onset of an asthma episode.

Well, thanks for listening!
