Hi I am new to all this but not asthma, I was diagnosed at 18 months old so I have had it for 44 years.
I have recently got worse and have had a lot of time of work and as a temp worker I am never going to get a full time job again as too much time off. During the periods when I am fine I can work ok. When I am bad I can't even get to the toilet without having to take a break.Of course I have not inflicted this on myself by being an addict or someone who ( I will admit this did smoke but gave up 20 years ago) still smokes so makes things worse so I don't get any help during these periods. So the family goes without because I am ill this seems totally unfair and a load of nonsense. Even the steriods they give you don't help long term as these cause just as many problems as they solve. I know when I finish my present contract I will be on JSA not ESA as I will be deemed fit for work which I agree with but help me when I am ill as well. Has anybody got any suggestions as to any help
