Hi ppl. After putting it off for some months, I finally went to my doctor with my breathing problems. He said I have developed asthma.
I have never had this before.
I can't remember exactly when I began to have trouble, but it's been in the last year or so, I think. Seems to be traffic and train engine fumes and other people's dirty cigarette smoke causing the problem.
I've got a brown inhaler to use with the plastic 'spacer' bubble, and a blue inhaler to use when things get painful.
I'm now on day 2 and it may be psychological, but I do seem to feel a little better, even though I appear to be losing my voice!
I've slept better due to no coughing, and it doesn't hurt so much when I laugh.
I had no idea adults could develop asthma, and I was gobsmacked when I was told it was!
Well, could be worse, and I guess now I have proper things to help me - the inhalers.
So I just thought I would say hi
