Helen: Helen, aged 58, recalls her family moving from NSW to WA when she was diagnosed with asthma to avoid the humidity. Helen did ballet as a child to help with the asthma. The asthma has become more severe over time and she still does not travel to places where the climate is humid. Helen found that 10 days sick leave during her working life was never enough. She sees healthcare providers for physical not emotional support.
