Just thought I would say a quick hi to you all.
I was diagnosed with Asthma during a bout of Pnuemonia in January of this year. I was given Ventolin (blue inhaler), which helped for a bit, but even since my recovery I have been having problems and using the inhaler increasingly. I went back to my gp, who said that as long as i was having no more than 6 puffs a day that fine. Anyway, I became increasingly dependent on it...so went back to the docs - not in the mood to be fobbed off this time. He listened to my chest - did my peak flow, and told me that I had to have a Beclazone inhaler (brown one) too. He suspects that the Pnuemonia inflammed my airways that much, they haven't recovered! So I have the brown inhaler for until next spring to hopefully get me through the colder months without too many problems. If I have no more problems in the meantime I will be reviewed next spring. He has also advised me to have a flu jab.
Anyway, thats enough from me for now!
