Please tell me how all you parents of children with asthma deal with it. I have been finding it really very difficult with my son who has severe asthma. I have been living in a family full of asthma sufferers. My father suffered asthma and by brother had to grow up with it, so it is not as if I do not know the nuances of the disease but it has me thoroughly confused. I feel so miserable when I find my son having such a tough time trying to breathe. We had to take him to the hospital a few days back and when he got better, I do not know why, but I just felt like running off. I am at a loss about how to look out for an attack, when it will hit and about not knowing if it will be worse than the previous one. When I am all alone I feel even more miserable and find it so difficult to understand all of this.
