Monalisa opens up about her battle with Asthma-Watch

New Delhi: Bhojpuri industry's most-sought-after actress Monalisa has opened up about her battle with asthma.  

Taking to Instagram, Mona wrote, "I came across this inspiring story of @priyankachopra revealing she has asthma and hence I thought I should also #OpenUpToAsthma and share my story. I absolutely love swimming. The moment I look at water, I just cannot control myself. But for the past few years, I started having breathing issues, but since I thought it is because of my hectic life and polluted city, I never got myself checked. One day when I was swimming, I thought my breathing had completely stopped and I didn't know what to do. Luckily my friend was with me who is asthmatic, understood the symptoms and suggested I should immediately get myself checked. I was not sure what the outcome would be but my friend's reaction did scare me. When my doctor told me that I have mild asthma and I have to use an inhaler whenever I have breathing problems. I was like, What? Why would I need it? I definitely didn't take it well and I also didn't tell anyone, not even my family. My doctor had given me some breathing exercises and an inhaler. It was a very difficult time when it all started as it put me on break from swimming for a couple of weeks. I have never spoken about my condition before. Infact I use my inhaler when no one is around. But now when I saw Priyanka's video, I thought if she could open up, why am I hiding? What's stopping me? Should I even be bothered as to what people will say or think? And I thought I am way beyond that. I have made a successful career for myself and have never let anything stop me ever, not even asthma. I have always come out as a winner. Then why not just open up? So now, it's your turn to #OpenUpToAsthma. I challenge @charliechauhan @moushumibanerji @nik446 to tell the world their own story or stories of asthmatics that inspire them by living life to the fullest. I also want all of you watching this video to share your."
