Breathe Right, Now
At the age of 2 I was hospitalized with pneumonia. I grew up with parents that smoked. I had chronic bronchitis until my mid 30’s, breathing issues for decades, and pneumonia at 2, in my teens and 20’s. At times it was painful to breath and I know my breathing was impaired. I went to the doctors/hospitals on numerous occasions because I couldn’t get enough air. I had a puffer for a while but I really didn’t like the idea of using it. I was offered medication but didn’t take it. I had grown up on antibiotics, cough syrup, medication and I didn’t want to continue on this path.
When I breathed it hurt, like I couldn’t get enough air. This would cause anxiety because I always felt like I was gasping and struggling to live.
