I have been a member of the ASC patient program (NAPA) for a couple of years and this year worked on strategic planning for the executive of this "group." Being on the NAPA Executive gave me the opportunity to meet and talk regularly with other people with asthma - some with symptoms and treatments like mine - some much worse off. We are now working on fine-tuning of NAPA's role in the ASC to try to make sure that anyone who joins NAPA can also experience the camaraderie I experience and receive good information about their asthma and how to manage it.
I write this asthma diary - not so much to complain - but to share my experiences and knowledge with others. Hopefully it helps people understand how complicated asthma can be - I mean who would think asthma affects your feet?
The other thing is that tomorrow I have a appointmens with my asthma doc and respiratory therapist in Vancouver. It will be a long gruelling day with a relatively early start (8:30 ferry), appointments at 12 and 1, new information on what is going on and what I should do, and finally home - likely on the 5:15 ferry. So a 12 hour day for 2 short but absolutely vital appointments. Hopefully this whole silly thing with my feet will be resolved.
