It all depends on what triggers your Asthma and what you do to control it. The Americam Lung Association has a good reference section about Asthma as well as a site called Medscape. Speaking as a Respiratory Therapist I cannot give you a diagnosis/prognosis as only a Physician can. You should try to find a Pulmonary Physician for help in maintaining a good quality of life for yourself. He/She would have the knowledge to provide you with the right medication for your disease and offer you good advice. Most people with Asthma lead long and productive lives (example is Jerome Bettis of the Pittsburgh Steelers) and are able to keep living a normal life. One word of advice is if you smoke you find help with quitting as soon as possible. Good Luck.
