Today is World Asthma Day.
I have asthma.
But I´m not alone as it is sadly one the most common diseases worldwide.
The WHO assumes that 230 to 300 million people worldwide suffer from this disease – and that´s only the reported cases.
Although it is a serious disease it can be treated and if treated well there´s nothing to stop you from conquering the world – literally, as in: The roman emperor Augustus suffered from asthma and ruled the Roman Empire (and he wasn’t even treated!) 😉
Napoleon, Ludwig van Beethoven, Charles Dickens and Theodor Roosevelt had asthma – and look what they´ve done!
Still, it´s not funny to have asthma but you get used to it.
I have to take my sprays each and every day and if I get a cold or any other respiratory infection it takes me usually twice as long to get back in good health again as someone who doesn’t have asthma.
