I was born with chronic asthma as much I got older it got more worse. in 2001 my asthma got really bad I was always in the hospital, I was admitted like once a month or sometimes once every 2-3 months. Then in 2002 I was getting asthma alot I was injecting myself with epipen but there times that I almost passed away. Then I couldn’t take it anymore I decided to move to Florida because of this illness.
Then I got to Florida I was still getting asthma but in 2005 it got really life threatning that I was going to the hospital every two weeks and now it’s from 3days to 2 weeks it just depends it starts all of sudden. When I get the bad asthma attacks my oxygen tends to go down from the 60′s to the 80′s and since I’ve been in Florida I had 10 pneumonias and i’ve been admitted almost all of these times. I also have diabetes and other medical conditions for my age. Like 3 days ago I just got discharged from the hospital and my husband had to call the ambulance because I had a very severe asthma attack and my oxygen was in the 80′s.
In nov 2, 2006 I’m going to a 2nd opionion to see if this doctor could help me out and if this doctor can’t not help me out my family and I planning to move out of Florida. I’m trying to find the dryest and cleanest climate. The doctors that I’ve been to told me that I should try going to the westside or even Georgia, or N. Carolina or South Carolina. It’s just hard to live a normal life and going to place with my kids like I use to do. I can’t even work because of this asthma. — Arlene, Florida
