Hi, im new to the forum and have Type II Brittle Asthma which has remained constant for the past 15 years im 38 now), but anyone who knows about this type of asthma will know that constant means living with the uncertainty of a serious and very sudden attack, these happen for me within minutes and no warning signs, In general I would say that I have about 3-4 a year, no link or cause has ever been found and each one leaves me very ill for up to a month.
I just wondered if there was anyone else out there who knows what its like to live with this constant threat? it makes it very hard to plan to go anywhere as I always have to check I have heaps of meds with me and can access a hospital very quickly if needed.
Im lucky where I live in that my GP surgery have some great Nurse Practitioners who I know very well now and can get in to see them whenever I need and are a huge support to me.
Anyway, I hope to hear from anyone and to try and learn new ways of coping with this.
