tests today

had a load more breathing tests today and its shattered me. i actually vomited after one of the tests - nice. although im seeing the resp team in the morning i was told that my results seem to be the same as last time, so in 2years i havent got any better but on the plus side they havent got worse. the only real change is that i have lost a little bit of height and am having more attacks. the reversibility tests show that im using my inhalers properly so thats good. after i left the hospital a very embarrassing thing happened which was when a very old looking oap with loads of bags asked if i needed help getting up some steps lol, granted i did have my crutches and must have looked rough after being sick but even so lol....
