I was reccently diagnosed with asthma in Easter of this year. This got me wondering though.
My attack was caused by a croopy cough that I get and since I was two I have had this cough. Everytime I was taken to the doctors they continually told me and my parents it wasn't asthma and even after a hospital diagnosed me...They continue to tell me that it's not.
Then whenever I have an asthma attack at school I am taken out of the class to my school office were they refuse to do anything because they claim I don't have asthma.
I was in London with my school and I had two rather serious asthma attacks and they sat with me for 3 hours to get me to breath normally and they kept saying you shouldn't take your inhaler it doesn't help with your asthma as you are making it up. They wouldn't take me to the hospital even after train station staff told them they were phoning for an ambulance.
What makes it worse is my step dad takes mad turns whenever I have an asthma attack and I have to phone for an ambulance as his daughter only had two serious ones were she ended up in hospital when she was two and three...
Anyone else have this problem?
