I Have had asthma for ages but not had bad attacks for a few years, until now. They closed our hospital and opened a new one which is 1 hour 10 mins away. I am a single parent and although my family are supportive, everybody works, I can't always get help with the kids. My kids are 16 and 8. My ex is not supportive and last time (a couple of weeks ago) I was admitted he told my 16 year old to take the day off school to take the wee one to school, (high school bus leaves an hour before primary starts and comes home an hour later)she was distraught because sitting her higher exams. I had to sign myself out.
Now I'm having a hard time again, doc said should be in hospital but said no cos childcare problems and its just so far away for any visitors. So don't even get to see my kids. They nebulised me at docs and am on max steroids, but still really really struggling. getting v, depressed now as housework getting too much and place is a state. I am willing to buy a nebuliser but doc said if I need nebs I should be in hospital, so they wont prescribe the ventolin for it. Surely other people have home nebs? Ive been multi dosing this morning so shaky and tired Also I'm self employed so no money coming in while I'm ill which makes it even worse as no money at all
