Megn M., CA

I don't smoke and was in great health. We recently moved to Bakersfield (from Colorado). Within three months, I began having severe allergies. Another three more months later, I'm on corticosteroids and a COPD inhaler due to chronic bronchitis and asthma. I need my full time job, but I'm looking to move in higher elevation and commute.
