Jam, I’ve dealt with asthma for most of my life as well. Luckily I’ve controlled it well enough to be able to enjoy being active outdoors. I got onto amateur bike racing in my thirties with the help of a hardcore marine! I still take two preventives daily and have a rescue inhaler. If I get sick I usually wind up on prednisone.

I no longer use power machines in my shop, I’m almost 100% hand tools. Much lower dust amounts. I also go out and exercise several times a week. Doing this I haven’t had to use the inhaler for more than two years now.

Thanks for the PSA and good luck going forward.
