I'm feeling pretty alone and fed up with these lungs of mine so I thought I'd come out of lurkerdom and say hi! I've been registered on here for a while but I don't post very much; I feel that I rarely have anything of use or interest to say.
I'm hoping that if I start to visit the discussion pages more, and contribute, then I might start to feel like part of the community After all, there is no point in me sitting here feeling sorry for myself if I'm not making an effort! I've got a blog but I'm not very good at posting in it as I don't want it to turn into something where I just moan and be depressing!
Briefly about me, I've had brittle asthma for about 6 years, previously I was completely healthy. I've had numerous respiratory arrests, a cardiac arrest and a heart attack. I sometimes get coronary artery spasms which are like angina, generally this only happens when my lungs are misbehaving. I'm currently in the middle of a looooooooong battle to be allowed to return to work.
I've got some lovely friends, and my family constantly nag me, but I don't like to talk about my stupid lungs as sometimes I feel like a broken record. I think it's hard for them to understand what it's like to struggle to breathe when they haven't experienced it.
So yes, a slightly longer post than I intended, but hello!!! Dawn x
