ABOUT ME

Allergy Protect - Rachel Collins

Hi, I'm Rachel and welcome to my blog.

I was diagnosed with asthma when I was 15, and we can say, this illness has marked my life and everything I do in it.

In my 20s I thought I had everything figured out, but it turned out a horrible asthma attack almost ends my life. With the help of what I already knew, and some of my fellow friend-sufferers and doctors, I compiled a list of articles in this blog that helped me go through my asthma and be able to manage it as well as possible.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something to help you along the way.
