Description: As a young girl, I remember sitting on the sofa sandwiched between my eldest uncle and my younger uncle. What was most striking about that memory, was that I did not understand "asthma" or why each of them was restricted from participating in outdoor activities, and rather sentenced to the sofa and an inhaler that they each were holding up to their mouths.
