Having trouble getting answers. Was diagnosed with asthma in 2005. Started having some trouble breathing (and skin allergies) in 1998. Doctor said my asthma is genetic and started up in 1998 because I moved from the Colorado mountains to a semi-arid desert area. Is bronchitis/pneumonia every few weeks a usual part of asthma? I now live in the Northwest. I was then diagnosed with COPD in january by a GP who told me to see a pulmonary specialist. So far, the specialist is saying just asthma, which is a huge relief, but I'm "laid up," and don't know how to do "couch potato" living! In between bronchitis/pneumonia episodes, they say I'm breathing "within normal levels" -- maybe "couch potato normal," but not my normal. I'm a singer/dancer/athlete/traveler unable to do any of the above until I can find some way to deal with all of this! Has anyone tried homeopathic or ayurvedic treatments with any success? Any other athlete/singer/dancer/travelers out there? it seems like now I if I even get near a breeze I'm laid up for three weeks at a time with bronchitis/pneumonia! Most recently caught a chill going from the airplane to airport. So sick of being sick! How does a person live like this?! I realize some of you have dealt with asthma your whole lives! Wow! This has been very humbling and I'm very grateful for all of the years I was asthma-free. Any help all of you veterans could give me would be most appreciated!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
