When you have asthma, there are many ways to get support.
If you have asthma, you've no doubt developed your own strategies for managing the condition but it's good to know that you can share the burden with others when you need.
Having a written Asthma Action Plan developed with your doctor can help you and others recognize when you need to seek help.
In addition, there are organizations that can provide helpful information and support. You can visit their Web sites or call them.
