Learning to Live with Asthma
By Beth A. Beutler
  

1     Rendy sat on the bench, breathing hard. She felt like her throat was closing. The spring air with all its pollen really triggered her asthma. She closed her eyes and willed herself to relax. The attack slowed down, and soon she was able to breathe easier again. She kept her eyes closed and let her memories float...
 
2     Rendy had never known what it was like to not have asthma. She and her parents first discovered it when she was a toddler and began wheezing while playing outside. Her parents rushed her to the hospital. The doctor determined that she had asthma, which meant that her breathing became disrupted in certain circumstances. He prescribed a medication in the form of an inhaler. Whenever Rendy began to feel asthma coming on, her parents would have her breathe in the medicine through a special plastic piece attached to the inhaler. They had to make sure the medicine was with them at all times.
 
3     When Rendy got older, she became more frustrated with her asthma. Sometimes she couldn't keep up with other kids when playing games like kickball. After running for just a little while, she would begin to wheeze. Then she'd take her inhaler out of her pocket. One time she forgot it, and another kid got an adult to help. Fortunately, Rendy's mom was nearby, and she had an inhaler with her.
