I was diagnosed with asthma in 1972, and in 1985 I became an inpatient at National Jewish Hospital/ National Asthma Center (now National Jewish Health) for six months. I now have what I refer to as hardluck asthma, although it's controlled. Since 1995 I've been a respiratory therapist, so my shareposts come from the perspective of both a patient and a professional. I'm author of Respiratory Therapy Cave where I share lung wit and wisdom, and Hardluck Asthma where I'm currently writing the history of asthma, inhalers, nebulizers, and respiratory therapy.
