I think i may have posted a similar post before but i really do not know what to do to make my work understand how serious asthma can be etc. they seem to find it funny etc. I think because i take panic attacks as well they get confused and see them as the same but really they are not at all - in a way i can link them if i am stressed and take a panic attack and start to hyperventilate i can take an asthma attack but if i take an asthma attack it is SERIOUS it is NOT A JOKE and the mojority of the time it is not caused by stress.
Yesterday my asthma came on and after half an hour i was still struggling and was getting no better i tried to tell the managers who was just do what you need to do and walked off, i then explained through struggling to talk that i needed to go to hospital to which they replied on you go. I nearlly collappsed in the corrider (yes i was walking to the nearest taxi rank to get a taxi to casualty), I then had to attempt to call an ambulance from my phone but didn't have a signal by this time another collegue waked along and tried to find a first aider (they've all been giving the same weeks holiday!!) and another of my collegues with a car offered to drive me a drop me off.
I've aready been to the store manager about this and he has told me they can't do that but they have over and over again but they justcan't dea with it and i am so so so so scared i am going to have serious consequences beause of it, anything could have happened on my way to taxi rank or phoing myself is really bad when undreds of people are about.
What can i do? or am i over reacting?
