She sprayed all her furniture and her father's car, and she started having what she describes as being severe asthma attacks. She started vomiting because she was coughing so hard and her ""wind pipe was getting constricted"". Her eyes get watery, she also experiences gagging due to severe coughing spells, and intermittent severe headaches. She is also having a hard time to sleep because she keeps waking up coughing. She went to see her Doctor, and since she could not eat because of her condition, her Doctor put her on Ensure. No new treatment has been prescribed, she is using her usual asthma medication. She was on her couch when she first started experiencing these symptoms. She then went to her bedroom and experienced the same symptoms.
