Who loves a & e not!!

After a brief visit to the local costa where I might add, I have frequent flyer miles, I was more fed up with the care than usual. Cons reviewed briefly when my boss took me in, then handed over to a newbie doc. 'can we site a canular? No said I. Your not doing your peak flow properly, well I am not doing it again. I was a bit of a mare I admit, but 4 nebs later and with sats of 93 I said yes much better now, I am off. I am a seasoned asthmatic and although much better controlled nowadays, I was once a RBH patient, and as we all know we know much more about our chests than most a&e docs!

Thank you for letting me vent my frustrations fellow wheezers, enjoy your days xx

Have come to the conclusion that you always meet some one who will annoy you in A & E, I was once a seasoned RBH patient and often feel my downfall is knowing too much, but all said and one my local A & E have been marvellous lately, and I am for one thankful they exist.

Nothing like an asthma attack to make you feel grumpy! Hope you carry on improving.
