Here are some tips:
Spend time writing things down in detail—what, where, when, how.
This is about being skilled in who to ask to do what, based on their strengths and capacity to help.
The more specific you are, the easier people will find it to help you. For example, "Can you water my grass once a week?" is clearer than "Can you help with my yard?" Make sure you explain why you need help, too.
Practice! It doesn't matter if you botch your lines—rehearsing will help you to build confidence.
Make your request at a time and place when the person you're asking can concentrate on what you need. Ask by person or by phone, and choose a time when they’re not too busy.

Asthma: SYMBICORT is for the treatment of asthma in patients 6 years and older whose asthma is not well-controlled with an asthma-control medicine such as an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) or whose asthma warrants treatment with both an ICS and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA).
SYMBICORT is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and will not replace a rescue inhaler.Please see full Prescribing Information and Patient Information, and discuss with your doctor.
