I Have noticed that, a lot of asthma publications, seem to be for children up to the age of 11. I was wondering If anyone, knew of anything for older kids.
My 13 year old son is fed up, he is having a bad time with his asthma at the moment, sick of all his meds, and feeling right down.
Iv'e tried to get him to read some posts, on here but he won't. So thought maybe I could at least shove a book, mag, or anything specificaly about, older kids and asthma, under his nose (worth a try anyway) so he doesn't feel like the only one suffering, and help him get through bad times.
I know there is stuff out there for adults, but I think teens and young adults need something specifically for them, as It is hard enough for them, growing up into the adult world, but it is so
much, harder, when they have medical problems as well.
Also really need advice about how to stop him from panicking when he is having a asthma attack. He is getting worse with his problem, obviously, I try to keep him calm, but when you see the terror on his face it's heart wrenching.
Iv'e mentioned this to gps and other people , but all they seem to say is, "" well he will be scared"" Well that comment is useless to us. I need proper usefull comments, or advice.
So thanks in advance for any comments
