Asthma is a medical problem, but it can have a powerful psychological impact as well. If you or someone you love has asthma, this book will help you "breathe easier" about the challenges it poses in relationships, at work, and in everyday activities. From social embarassment, to anxiety, to feelings of incapacity and low self-esteem, each chapter is packed with real-life stories of commonly encountered problems and step-by-step strategies for solving them. Topics covered in this practical, authoritative book include: asthma myths and misconceptions - are they hurting you?; asthma's effects on the family; parenting an asthmatic child; and asthma in the workplace - what you can do.
