What a strange position

Today i was daft enough to be cycling uphill without remembering my salbutamol, luckily i saw someone i knew en route and they had thiers, i took 2 puffs and they carried on, however my wheeze and cough has not subsided and theres a bus ride to Redditch, then a down hill ride home to go before getting some meds.

how do i get out of this one?

sorry to be a moan, but ive been feeling like this all day and tried various different relaxation techniques to calm it but nothing has helped. plus i dont really fancy visiting a costa as the acute attack has been calmed and i'm just having the threatening after effects.

  • just emailed other half, he has doctors at 4.50pm and i get back to Redditch at 5.00, ive asked him to meet me there with a reliever, should make riding home a little more comfortable.

    thats if it works this time

  • Hi Wendy

    Hope you got home ok and hope the ventolin has worked it's magic!!! Don't forget the ventolin next time you go cycling though!!

  • thanks :)

    it worked temparaily, still working off the after effects lol, theres a valuble lesson to be learned here...

    before you leave the house, check, double check and in some cases triple check.

  • Hi Wendy,

    Why not check out this web site and get a PuffaPouch so that you have your inhaler on a cord round your neck or even clipped to the bike!

    They are great and available in Nice funky colours - I have a blue one and a pink one. The company also donate some of the cost to AUK!


    Take care




    PS I have been banned from riding my bike - ended up in A&E too many times!

    I've just been onto that puffapouch site - what a fab idea! I've just ordered a pink one to start with!
