I know Im being a bit of a Victor Meldrew but I am now pretty fed up. Had asthma for a while but my first major attack on 15th April followed by the usual preds and antibiotics. Returned to doctor following week feeling okish. Doctor says chest infection - more antibiotics. Went to work on Monday of this week and got sent home and told 'don't come back until your cough is gone!' I think I got on everyones nerves, but tbh I don't notice me coughing, I have just got used to it! Returned to doctor this week as I am still using 6 puffs of symbicort and at least 8 puffs of ventolin a day and he has given me another week off work. I am never off work, I am so cross with my lungs! I thought yesterday afternoon I was feeling much better and back to my old self, but oh no, my lungs let me down again and I am now feeling completely exhausted again. My mouth and throat are really sore from taking so many doses of my inhalers, my back and neck ache and I am official the most fed up person in the world!! My morning peak flow is 300 and my evening is 240. I feel as though I am about 70 - I asked my pensioner parents to check their peak flow and my mum got 450 and dad got 600. I CAN'T BELIEVE I DONT FEEL BETTER!! Any ideas on what I can do to boost my immune system and restore my energy levels. I have three children and lots to do but my batteries have run out!
