I had a severe respiratory illness about a month ago, from which I thought I had recovered. However, after spending 2 hours in my garden this morning, I'm not so sure. It's a code orange day and I'm short of breath after being back inside and under air conditioning for an hour. I'm usually pretty healthy. This is scary. I can't imagine what it's like for those with asthma or COPD or other chronic lung conditions.
