I used to have extreme asthma. Some cases are more severe then others, and when i was younger, I swear it was a pretty severe one. It started with me getting a simple cold, and then my asthma kicked in, and hell... 3 months of school missed. I can't even remember what happened in those 3 months. I just know i was attending a lot of knowledge about asthma meetings.
But now my asthma is pretty clear, never have any attacks, but my throat gets rather tight sometimes, and i can still feel it there
