It is hard to pinpoint exactly when I began to have problems with my voice. I’m a lifelong asthmatic who has been on medication, and has received allergy shots since I was a child. About five years ago I saw the […]
Fascinating and terrifying. In the late 1980s I was being regularly treated for asthma, which was all allergen induced (primarily cat dander). I have, over the years, been able to forgo medications completely by a rigid avoidance of my allergens (sorry, if you have a cat, I won’t come to your house). I feel very lucky that the fix was so easy. I do, however, remember a doctor’s appointment when inhaled steroids were presented to me as an option moving forward. I immediately asked about the long term effects of steroids passing directly across my folds on a regular basis. The doctor had no answer to my question, so I refused them, and went to a non-steroidal treatment. I am so glad I did, and I will now be even more diligent in watching out for their use with my students.
