Hello Everyone - New Member

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to say hi. I am 24, from South Wales and have had chronic asthma all my life. I joined AUK in order to make friends, and speak to people who know what it is like to suffer with Asthma. Feeling pretty crap and wheezy today, went out yesterday to watch the rugby, spent all day in a smokey club (roll on April) and feel like I have smoked 40 fags! I am sure you all know what thats like!

Anyway just wanted to say Hi :-)

  • Hi Candycough and Spaniel,

    Welcome to AUK. I hope you find it a supportive and informative place.


  • Welcome candycough & spaniel!

    I've just been into the RBH again last week & they actually asked me if I was on the asthma uk (AUK) message boards (part of the ""social life"" questionnaire the student nurse was asking me (the ""guinea pig"" about). I've read the boards on/off for a few years (mostly off), & have had some great advice about nebulisers in the past, and sub-cut trials recently. As my social life has almost completely disappeared for a few years, I've resolved to try and make some new friends & be a bit more active on the boards too. So hopefully people will welcome me too - don't worry you don't have to post again & say welcome.

    Love from sheep - another wild animal with a sense of humour in the AUK zoo.

    Welsome 2 Auk


  • Hi Sheep

    How you doing? I'm also new to the boards, and my social life also suffers coz of my asthma but I'm looking forward to july!!!! just wondering, whats's RBH and also do you know what costa means?

  • Lejaya Costa is hospital we say we are in nhs costa it sounds nicer than hospital.

    RBH stands for the royal brompton hospital which is a centre of excellence for heart and lungs. They have a difficult asthma team which take you right back to the begining run every test under the sun and then hopefully give you the correct diagnosis and even more importantly give you a protocol of care for both you and your gp and medical team at your local hospital.

  • wow the RBH sounds great how do you get an appointment?

  • Hi lejaya, sorry to use initials & code - thanks for explaining bowmei. And sorry for not replying - I'm really struggling at the moment. My gp had sent me to a chest consultant at my local hospital & they referred me to RBH. I'm biaised as I go there, and I do think the RBH are fab, but there are other great hosps for asthma care too.
