What a scary week! It has to be said... and i'm still not right.
I'm really not enjoying this cold weather, seems like others aren't either. I think i experienced my first asthma attack on Friday evening. My asthma had been playing up all week but I was feeling much better through the day at college on friday...though friday night was awful. I'd gone to my friend's 18th party, it was a house part but we were based in the garden and in her shed (which was heated!!). But we also had a fire in the garden which was lovely 'cos we all sat around singing campfire songs. But the smoke and my chest weren't exactly getting along very well, and having had a few to drink by this point, i didn't really take notice, because 1) i wanted to have a good time 2) i was only wheezing very slightly.
Anyway, my chest became really tight and so i went inside to try and find my inhaler, only to find it wasn't there. my friends came down looking for me and rang my parents to try and explain what was happening... to cut a long story short my mum had to bring it over for me, and everything was fine. But i just felt like i was literally breathing through a squashed tube, and i couldnt get any air in or out, was really awful... i mean ventolin calmed it down pretty quickly and i returned to normal, but i'm still wheezy today and this is two days later. I haven't needed my inhaler though, so hoping it will calm down. I'm going to gess this was an attack - and only a mild one it seems... but i don't want it to happen again. Praying this isn't one in a long line of attacks to come. It wrecked the night for me and everyone at the party cos they were all worried sick!
Hope everyone is ok, still pretty new to asthma so would appreciate any advice.
Thanks for taking time to read this,
