I feel sooo tired!
In the last 6 weeks both my daughters have been nebbed in hospital.
My eldest is on 3 inhalers and Montelukast.Shes just finished pred.
My youngest daughter is on steroid nebs twice daily, 2 inhalers, Montelukast, anti hists, Omeprazole and Gaviscon. And now shes on additional Pred and Antibs!
I dont feel like a mummy at the mo, I feel like a nurse. All I do is seem to nurse them, medicate them, get up to the night and try and stop them vommitting through coughing, have to stop the car on the side of the road and give emergency puffs. All this is daily. Not a day off! Everything we do, we have Asthma hanging over us like a dark cloud.
Im shattered. Little sleep and then the additional load through the day is taking its toll. I feel like i cant enjoy being a parent and doing normal things with them. My youngest is struggling to walk far at the moment.
We came back froma trip abroad a fortnight ago. While away, neither had any symptoms whatsoever. i really felt like we got respite. Then we came home and bam! full on Asthma for them both!
Im sat here in tears as I am sad for what things are like. Ive got a teenage son too.
Just feel ive got nothing of me to give anymore.
Does anyone else feel like this? I would do anything for my girls to be healthy and for us to experience the weightlessness we did while abroad, on a long term basis.
How do you all cope with the horrid condition we all are affected by?
