Today I found on the internet a local British Lung Foundation support group, for anyone living with a lung condition. At the moment I am really struggling with my asthma and seem to be deteriorating a bit (generally, I'm ok at the minute though!) and am finding it quite difficult to cope with (physically and mentally), although I have a fantastically supportive boyfriend (300 miles away...)
I would like to make new friends and learn how others cope with living with a chronic lung condition, but I can't help thinking that I'll be the youngest by 50 years and be comparatively well compared to some of the members and thus end up thinking I shouldn't be so worried about myself. (I'm not being assuming or prejudiced, I saw a picture of the group online and they were mostly definately in their twilight years...)
So, my questions to you: has anyone been to a support group for asthma or any other group (don't feel you have to specify)? Was it helpful? Should I give it a go?
I really am at my wits end, now there are no more meds for me to take and I ain't getting any better...all coping suggestions welcome please!
Thanks in advance xx
