Although this blog started as the voice of one person, it soon became apparent that it could be a home to many voices. We have a number of regular bloggers who you can read a little about here, as well as from time to time see guest blogs from other people we have come to know through dealing with varying forms of Asthma.
This is Lynn, who is 38 and from London (UK).
The founder of Easy Wheezy Breathy and officially diagnosed with Type 2 Brittle Asthma, Anemia, Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, Osteopenia, Non-Allergic Perennial Rhinitis and PTSD. She has been Asthmatic since childhood and was classed as Brittle Asthmatic in her teens.
Lynn is often in hospital with over 15 admissions (so far) in 2017 alone, she is under the team at the Royal Brompton Hospital and often blogs about the issues surrounding regular admissions, ventilation and trying to have a normal life.
She loves the outdoors …. even though it seems to hate her and is often found exploring things when her Asthma allows.

This is Liz Flett-Wood who is 31 from South London and married to Kirsten Flett-Wood (see above), yes we have dared to have a married couple blogging on the same site.
Liz also is blogging from a slightly different point of view being whilst she has her own conditions in the way of mild reactive asthma (think infection and hay fever related), she also has multiple allergies (nuts, coconut and hay fever), depression and severe migraines – which are mostly hormone related, cluster in type and completely debilitating when they’re at they’re worst, thankfully not too often. She is kindly blogging more from the carer side, helping us have a great insight into another part of our world.
