Learning basic first aid techniques can help you cope with an emergency. You may be able to keep a person breathing, reduce their pain or minimise the consequences of injury or sudden illness until an ambulance arrives. This could mean the difference between life and death for them.
It is a good idea to take a first aid course so that you can recognise an emergency and give basic first aid until professional help arrives
6 Things about Chronic Pain you did not know you knew.
Pain is exhausting: You may not have consciously realized it, but the pain that has relentlessly nagged you throughout the day has drained you as bad as any flu.
Pain causes poor sleep: You would think that after a long day of fighting with constant sleep would be a great reprieve. Unfortunately, this is just a dream ( pun intended ) .
Pain makes you cranky: Chronic pain sufferers aren't ( all ) just cranky buggers by nature. Pain drains you physically and mentally.
Pain kills your concentration: Most chronic pain patients fight like crazy to live a normal life. They try to ignore the pain and go about their days, but it's just not that easy.
Pain Damages your self esteem: You can't do what you want to do with your time even when you try and it seems like everyone is mad or unhappy with you no matter your efforts.
Pain causes isolation: When you're in constant pain, the last thing you want to do is attend the company party , the neighbor's backyard barbecue, or even small gatherings with your closest friends and family.

Asthma can be minor or it can interfere with daily activities. In some cases, it may lead to a life-threatening attack.Asthma may cause difficulty breathing, chest pain, cough and wheezing. The symptoms may sometimes flare up.Asthma can usually be managed with rescue inhalers to treat symptoms and controller inhalers that prevent symptoms. Severe cases may require longer-acting inhalers that keep the airways open, as well as oral steroids.
