|This is my breathing record for September,
October & November of this year.
|This is December and shows the effect of a recent virus.
But at home, measure my breathing twice a day. Asthma is different than many lung diseases because asthma is about having trouble breathing out, not in. By monitoring my breathing as I do, I know how much of what kinds of medicine to take.
I recently had a virus. You can see it hit me in the December chart where the big dip is. And now my breathing is unstable—there are daily fluctuations, but this is the first virus I have had in four years that did not require hospital treatment! That is amazing and significant for my future.
