I'm new to this forum and am basically feeling quite alone. Just got out of hospital on Saturday, was in for a week and was in HDU, nearly ITU which was a scare. I have brittle asthma which is normally ok but i have bad attacks, am on seritide, uniphyllin, accolate(zafirlukast), bambuterol, combivent/salb nebs. am not sure if bricanyl pump would help me. i've been on long term pred while at uni and now have stretch marks everywhere which i hate. my folks live abroad and so i don't have anyone to talk to who understands.
