I am very new to all this as I have only just been diagnosed with asthma after numerous symptoms which have recently led to it. I am very eager to learn a lot more about it and how to control it. I don't currently feel I have it under control, which is worrying me. I have been told to keep a record of my peak flow, how often I am using my inhaler and how often I am coughing daily. I'd like to ask how you are all controlling your asthma? As an aspiring singer I am anxious it will impinge upon this as well as my daily life style. Additionally, I have a big phobia of hospitals and needles and the thought of having an attack and being taken to a&e terrifies me, with the fear I will be given an injection. I would love to receive any extra advice or information from anyone and how it affects you personally?
