I've been hanging around this message board for a while. I'm actually from the states, but haven't found such a nice sight around where I'm from. I had a bad asthma attack last week, where I had to go to the ER. I needed pred. My doctor told me to have someone drive me or to call an ambulance. Has anyone here ever called an ambulance?
I'm also supposed to go to camp with the kids I work with, but now I can't go. It makes me sad that I can't do certain things because of asthma, despite taking so many meds.
Right now I'm on advair 230/21, alvesco 160, and singulair, plus a handfull of allergy meds. I also take xopenex.
How do you guys deal with the uncertainty of when you might have an attack, or in another way...the certainty that you WILL have an attack. I find it kind of depressing sometimes.
