Hi everyone.

I was the first person in my immediate family to have asthma. Is anyone else the first in their family?

I think the good thing - but not really good - about having someone in your family that has had asthma, is that they can kind of give you pointers and tips to help you. For us who are the first in the family - all the learning is on us.

No I’m the first, 22 years of welding, last 5 hit me very hard Isocyanate in Carl paint on military trailers, occupational asthma, doctors have me on a constant roller coaster trying to say I have COPD, no, I don’t, I am tired of dealing with the medical profession!!!! My pulmonologist who diagnosed me was killed in a plane crash tow years ago, these other quacks just don’t get it, they want to re-write the book after it was already published, I have been on disability now for 4 years in part, for  my condition, I’m managing it now but it’s a constant battle trying to get these doctors to understand, I guess no one reads medical records anymore
