I want my old lungs back. I became an asthmatic as an adult. There was a time before that when I could go to the gym and not have to worry about getting bronchitis.
Now, I step outside and next thing you know, I have bronchitis. Three antibiotics and steroids later, I am still battling bronchitis. Now I have to have a CT scan of my lungs to find out what is going on.
I have cough variant asthma, so I am pretty much coughing continuously because of pollutants in the air, as well as perfumes being sprayed in the air at the store where I work. I am also allergic to dust. I just wish I had my old lungs back!
