Learning how to use an inhalers might be hard to do at first for me but, I will fight threw it as they say: “what doesn 't kill you makes you stronger”. I hope that they find a cure for asthma because it will help a lot of people, If they do find a cure I know what I am going to read about next. So come on scientist you can do it let 's cure asthma for
