The bad; a reoccurring breathing problem (Taking Your Breathe Away). The diagnosis was asthma. I guess loosely defined, I would agree. Treating the symptoms with out identifying the cause is worrisome.
The good; the second round of oral steroid and antibiotics beat back the chronic symptoms.
The ugly; this go-round the antibiotics destroyed the good bacteria in my gut which left me very sick. So sick, it was a tough choice deciding whether to stand or sit to get the necessary relief I needed. A daily dose of “live cultures” will reintroduce that which was lost.
