still having problems with my asthma. I went to my asthma nurse yesterday as GP suggested. But got no where with her apart from her getting to see GP. This was GP no 8 in 4 wks. I did get some steroids and antibiotics out of him, because I insisted. I even told him what antibiotics I wanted. As there worked in Feb. I'm a nurse but I shouldn't be telling them what medication I want. I'm a special care baby nurse not an asthma nurse. Perhaps I should retrain.
I'm finding the whole thing very frustrating as many of you do. The asthma nurse is lovely but she never knows what to do with me. Yet isn't she supposed to be the expert. So I ask if GP no 6 did the referral to specialist, answer no. So I ask GP no 8 to do it, who said only if the antib's and steroids don't work. Can I see a specialist without GP referral? I have to go back to see GP no 8 on friday. I pointed out how many I'd seen in 4 wks. I've been off work all that time. And want to go back. I have been adviced at work to stay away at moment as everything so stressful and dusty with the hospital move. I went in on fri to empty my locker and i have to admit I struggled. It's just so frustrating as i'm no further on. I'm going to ring occ health at work to see if they can get me reffered quicker.
It's effecting my whole life. I can't do my church work while I'm off paid work. And I can't dance.
At least I can let off steam on here as you all understand.
Thanks for listening. cath
