Good Morning everyone,
Well feeling a bit rough this morning it has to be said. Last night was awful...
I was going to the theatre with friends from college and a teacher, as it was a part of our theatre course, and everything was brilliant. Before I left I was feeling a little tight so I packed my inhaler thinking it was probably a good idea. Anyhow, had a lovely day looking around the city, and then we all met up at the theatre.
As we were walking into the studio, everything was really hazy because they were using smoke machines. I have never ever had any problems before (out in town, other theatre performances etc), but I started coughing, and then as the performance commenced my chest just ceased up, and I began wheezing quite badly. I spent most of the time trying to control myself from making too much noise as I didn't want my teacher or my friends to know I was struggling. In the end things got too much, and I had to take my inhaler as due to the layout of the theatre, I couldn't leave without crossing over the performance space. Then much to my despair, they pumped even more of the stuff into the room, so I had to take my inhaler again... By this point I was have an attack. Luckily, the interval came pretty close after this and I was able to get outside where I collapsed in a heap on the floor gasping for breath. Continued to take ventolin, took 8 puffs in total and things started to calm down, though my breathing was still very rapid. Ended up getting the train and missing the second half and this morning my chest and ribs are really sore and my breathing still isn't properly back to normal.
Sorry for the rant but I am fairly new to asthma and it totally wrecked my evening. Just grateful it calmed down.
Hope everyone is ok,
