i know you just had a fantastic recovery with asthma but can you please remeber some of us have been battling with asthma for years and the medical people cannot just cure us like you! It really is winding me up that you keep questioning are you on a preventer etc. I am on lots of treatment for my asthma. I know quite a lot on asthma and have an amazing hospital team that are fighting to make me well. Your message quite upset me! Please be careful.
The fighting for breath report is found on asthma uk home page if you care to look. or type it in the search part of the website
please be gentle with your story some of us have been trying for years!
Looking through the posts Joan seems to be very new to asthma and has suffered with persistent symptoms for years until recently when an AUK adviceline nurse advised her to ask for a preventer, whereupon she is now symptom-free. She hasn't been, I feel, particularly evangelical about it, or OTT. I feel Plumie's response is a bit out of order - I can see where she's coming from, but I think it's a bit off to shout at someone new via PM like this.
What does the team think?
