Patsy: Patsy, aged 71, was diagnosed with asthma at 30 years old. She is a retired trust officer living with her husband. She feels that her asthma was stress-related as she doesn’t have allergies, and she was in denial about her asthma for quite some time. She has found broccoli sprouts and powder to be useful for her lung function. Her workmates didn’t know about her asthma, only that she had a bad cough.
