    Following to my previous thread, first I wish to thank everyone again for your friendly support.

    Now the news : despite of the serious alert I had, my asthma is a "soft" version of asthma, called "intermittent". From what the examination showed, I have no emphysema, and what showed on the radiography was a temporary irritation due to the violence of my crisis.

    I have quit smoking for more than 3 weeks now. I really have no temptation to take a cigarette again, and also I wish to say I feel much better. I haven't used ventoline for over 2 weeks (before, I used it daily). I breathe much better, I can walk fast, run, jump without problems with my breath. I can smell many things again (well, sometimes that's not a good thing :D )...

    So it seems, overall, that this alert was not as serious as it seemed. It was just my body telling me : "hey stoopid, so you wanna die now ?". My body was expecting for a reaction. I had it.

    At last, my wife and daughter were frightened when seeing me almost breathless. I don't think I have the moral right to cause them the fears and tears I caused them...

    With love,
