Tuesdays are Your Turn – World Asthma Day Advice
Because today is World Asthma Day,
Because the WAD theme this year is “You Can Control Your Asthma,”
Because most parents and patients facing a new diagnosis won’t know the first steps on that road to maintenance and control,
And because some of them will end up here through Google searches,
Let’s leave them some advice.
Say I could sneak back into history and face my kid’s diagnosis all over again for the first time. I’d find a strong, supportive, in-person or online community of people living with this condition and join it, fast, before I did anything else.
If you could give just ONE piece of advice to new asthma parents or patients, what would it be?
(P.S. How adorable is the Sidekick? That’s her, very serious and trying to give me advice when she was 5.)
