I had an asthma attack this afternoon but my peak flow didn't seem too bad. could this be due to hyperventilating? it confused me a bit.
Also, work really don't take it seriously. I find it hard enough as it is (got a thing about not liking making a fuss) but they seem to think I'm just trying to get out of working. One colleague asked me why I didn't come and tell her what I was doing first. My symptoms come on very quickly and I deterioate very quickly so I didn't think to tell anyone. I made sure I was with someone but funnily enough my main concern was being able to breathe. Not about who knew.
I do get scared and I'm often shaky and close to tears after. It really shocked me to go back to try and finish my work only to get moaned at by several people - for the fact that the work wouldn't be done.
Asthma frustrates me anyway but this really got to me.
Sorry if this doesn't make a lot of sense - I'm pretty tired.
