Hello there, am feeling a bit fed up so apologies!Am generally very positive and still am-just hacked off!I have had asthma since I was about 2-3 and am now 43, but the last few years it has turned ""difficult"". Have been into RBH difficult asthma protocol several years ago which wasn't a lot of help, unfortunately. I have loads of allergies and anaphylaxis, but my IgE levels for some reason are always really low, so can't get Xolair.(otherwise I would, very frustrating) My life seems to exist around months of high dose steroids and nebulisers, I have a home neb which keeps me out of hospital. Was off work for 9 weeks in the summer managed exactly 1 month finally off steroids and then got another chest infection- and am now at home having been off for 5 weeks, still on loads of steroids and regular nebs.Fed up!I constantly worry about losing my job due to my health- i work in the health care profession and have changed jobs which helped a bit, but not a huge amount, think I need to live in a bubble!Asthma seems to dominate my life and I used to be so active and sporty, it's not great at times. Have put on so much weight from all the steroids and being house bound for weeks on end. Sorry!Feel better having had a winge- and apologies!
