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 embarrassment, 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.
