I know a lot of you are struggling at the moment, I know it's not just me, but I really don't know what to do with myself any more. In the space of 4 days this week I have been in hospital TWICE, first time I had so many nebs I thought I was going to end up looking like one (this was after I had nebbed at home, to no avail), and was kept overnight, and the second time I was working a night shift (luckily in a hospital!) and had to go down to A+E for millions of nebs, IV magnesium, O2, the usual...have been on pred since sunday but I am still so short of breath, even walking up one flight of stairs has me reaching for my inhalers. I really don't want to go back in, and I'm not bad enough to consider it yet, but it's only a matter of time...
I am on what most doctors consider ""max meds"" - salbutamol, symbicort, spiriva, oxis, ciclesonide, home nebs and now pred for a little while. There is no point in making an appointment with my GP - although she is absolutely fantastic, there is nothing more she can do to help. I am at my wits end with my cons (never see the same one twice so it seems, so am going from pillar to post with meds) but have an appointment to see them in a few weeks time, but even so I'm not sure what they can do for me now either...
I'm sorry for the rant and moan but I am really depressed with it all, my asthma is restricting my life, my work, everything. I know there are people worse off than me, but I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. Even sat at the computer now writing this I am breathless and struggling a little...how am I going to complete my degree at this rate?!
Any general advice would be very much welcome, as well as possible next-step meds, and do you think I should arrange an admission with my GP (if this is possible - only ever gone in in emergencies, though many, many times!)?
Hope you are all keeping well, and that the nasty thunderstorm passing has allowed your lungs to recover!
