Caring for my daughter

My daughter has been having severe breathing problems for about six years. Drs cannot figure out what's going on with her (and we have been to MANY!) so, she is living with the fact that being 24 years old, she cannot do what a normal 24 year old can. She cannot hold down a regular job, as she never knows when this is going to be worse & also cannot be around a lot of people (due to low immunity). But, we make the best of it & have fun together at home or on an occasional outing. We are trying to make the best of it, but it's very tough seeing a young woman not be able to live her life as she should!

I'm so sorry.  That sounds really challenging.  Do things like albuterol rescue inhalers or steroids give her any relief at all?
