I and my daughter have cough variant asthma. There are times when I do not need my inhaler or medicines for months on end, then there are times when I need them often. My husband smokes, smokes in the house, smokes outside and comes right in reeking of smoke. Those nights, I cannot breathe as I try to sleep, awaking after only minutes gasping for breath. My husband is mad at me, says that I cannot be allergic to his smoking one day and not another time. I don't understand it either, but last night he smelled so strongly of stale smoke that I had to cover my nose and mouth to sit next to him. He says I am a hypochrondriac and I guess my doctor and I are wrong to think that my asthma is affected by his smoke. Am I nuts, is he, is it possible to have a reaction to smoke one time and be around him when he smokes other times and not react? I might add that right now I am ill with a tick born illness and have felt like absolute crap for the last couple of weeks and figure that my immune system is in overload right now causing reactions that I could normally fight off. But then, having a tick illness, possible Lyme Disease again, is something I have to fight alone as he gets mad when I get sick. Advice please, anyone. I need sites to show him to let him know the smoke is making me sick and hurting my daughter and me. He says it is nonsense.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
