asthma  and smoking in the workplace

asthma and smoking in the workplace

Im sorry if this is not appropriate here but I was not sure where else to post and I am getting fed up with my work place. I have moderate to severe asthma, I cannot be around cigarette smoke AT ALL EVER! The problem I am having is the fact that the restaurant I'm working out allows employees to smoke in the break room which is actually not a break room but rather a small area to the side of the kitchen where they squeezed a table and chairs. Im having issues with this because I am forced to sit in there on my break, I am not allowed to sit in the dining room, I am not allowed to stand 50-100 ft away from said room to avoid an attack and I am not allowed to go to my car for my break. Im also not allowed to just continue working on my break which is what I had been doing in order to avoid triggering an attack. My normal day manager Linda has been may extremely aware of the severeness of my sensitivity to smoke and does not care. I have been screamed at to go sit in the break room and suck it up. Im at a loss for what to do. I cannot afford my inhaler on my current salary and my doctor charges $30 for a doctors excuse because he insists on doing a physical before issuing one. Any advice? I almost had an attack today while trying to get to the bathroom (inside the breakroom)
