Asthma UK community forum

Hi *waves* just seeing whos around still?

Hi all, Im kinda new here i guess, well i've not been on in a few years so think that counts as new! I used to be a regular poster on here and have only just caught up with some old friends via facebook.

I used the name ballerina. or balletdancer sometimes....but now im justgil :)

Im 28yrs old, with severe brittle asthma, COAD and just altogether norty lungs!

I spend majority of my time in costa in ITU and generally only get around 3-4wks out. Im on all usual asthma drugs...Nebs, S/C Bricanyl, home o2 24/7. I also have Hickman line in which is my 'little life saver' as i no longer able to get cannulas in, due to scaring.

Im now just withering on, hoping to meet old and new faces :)

love gil xxx

Hi gil, I am a newbie, pleased to meet you. My well controlled asthma of sixteen years has turned severe just recently. I look forward to talking to you : )




Hi GIl

I'm Geina, I pop in and out when I remember to sign in! I do come and read everyday though! I'm a SAHM to 3 terrors. My asthma is relatively well controlled at the moment.

Hi Gil,

Welcome back,

Nice to meet you

Hi Gill. I'm new here too (actually, I'm new everywhere as this is the first time I've joined an online group of any kind - maybe when I'm brave enough I'll get onto facebook!)

Your asthma sounds very difficult to deal with and makes me feel that my problems are very minor in comparison. I only hope that i cope with mine as positively as you do.

Love, Annista
