May is Asthma Awareness Month

Not only is this "asthma awareness month," but my doctor just renewed my albuterol inhalant for my asthma symptoms. That's a very recent diagnosis, and I am well beyond my teenage years.

And the proposed coal burning power plant just across the James River hasn't even been built yet. What's in store for me?

I have some friends in the area who are suffering asthma symptoms for the first time in their adult years. What's going on? I know the recent pollen season has been a doozy--even for non-formerly allergic folks, but something's in our air.
