I was diagnosed with Asthma in 2005,but I suppose I was living in Denial,I am over weight I weigh 18 stone 8Lbs, I am 4ft 1, I have Diabetes live in Denial about that too I am Type 2.
I have had Diabetes for 7 years,I lost 5 stone on my first being diagnosed within 6 months,only to put it all back on a year later..
I have always had the odd cold cough bad chest,nothing serious I use my Easi-Breath on times of a cold I mostly feel ok..
I am not one to dwell on my conditions I just get on with it,recently I have given up the booze I rarely go out anyway,but I choose to have water,or Diet coke on a night out,on rare occations I might have 1 glass wine with lemonade.
3 week's ago I had a bad chest coughing can hardly sleep,coughing very bad drinking lots water,eating cough sweets,nothing helping I use mt inhaler,not working..
Most mornings I vomit I get lots mucus,I can hardly breath,I put it down to hay fever maybe????
After a few days I started to get better,only last wednesday I started coughing bad again can hardly breath I cried this morning as I can hardly do anything am worn out tired.
I then tried Seretide and I felt a lot better I am now putting it down to I have got Asthma,I am admitting defeat as I feel so bad,also I joined a Gym last week,taking things slowly and on a healthy eating plan,I realy am going to lose the weight had enough,could this have triggered my Asthma off going to the Gym?
Also I am new to this Forum,Glad I can get things off my chest !! I am worried and scared I have an appointment with my GP Tues 3rd May to discuss my health I need to reconise I have Asthma and not a cold !!1
