Yup Yup Yup. I remember when I was a little youngin' I had to stay overnight at the hospital in an oxygen tent on IV. It was frightening. Cold turn into bronchitis then pneumonia and it's really not that fun. Sports suck. Some nights you can't sleep because you can't breathe properly. At the hospital they ordered a childs sized mask because I didn't fit the adult one and I was the only child who showed up often enough. Almost died a few times from it.
You can control your asthma, and even outgrow it for a while but it's sort of always lingering.
