Hi everyone, just a quick mod-type posting for general consumption.
In recent weeks we've had quite a few posts on sensitive and/or alarming subjects which have caused people some distress.
Please could everyone bear in mind the following: whilst there are a lot of ""experienced"" brittle asthmatics who are used to regular severe attacks, ventilation, IVs and nebs off all natures, colours, sizes etc. - and are quite comfortable talking about their experiences - please, please bear in mind that these types of stories can be extremely alarming and distressing to less experienced board users and newcomers (and even some of the more experienced and old-time users!). Take a little time to re-read your post and reconsider how it may come across to others on the boards.
