I have brittle asthma type1 and 2 so im used to living with daily symptoms but it has been brought to my attention by hubby this scenario and i wondered if it happens to others and how they deal with it/or prevent it from happening?
Basically when i have 1 of my big attacks i fight at home for as long as possible (within my personal guidelines from con) once i get to a certain level i call 999- i seem to be able to keep fighting but what happenes is that within a few minutes of me getting on the ambulance i tend to deteriorate very quickly to the extent of needing intubation from the paramendics(only once thankfully) but always have a fulll welcome committee into resus including itu drs.
I have tried going in earlier but it still happened!! Do i keep fighting thyen once with the greeen men feel safe enough to relax and then splat or what???
any thoughts ideas etc would be much appreciated.
