I only really discovered I had asthma 6 days ago. I ended up in hospital in a life threatening condition and am finding it all so difficult to come to terms with.
I’ve had nasty chesty infections since having whooping cough at age 3. I was told 2 years ago that I had suspected asthma and was sent away with an inhaler to use as required.
My fourth bad chest this year took me to A&E where I expected to be given some meds and sent on my way, Instead I spent all week on oxygen and nebulisers.
Now that I’ve been discharged I’m falling apart. I’m so petrified that I’m going to die. It’s all such a massive shock and I have no idea how to handle it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated please.
