I was a member here for several years when my daughter was asthmatic. I made many friends and gained tonnes of help. She grew out of her asthma and is very well now but I have developed asthma and all the old info I had in my head is hiding!!
I'm still at the stage where I'm completing a peak flow diary but there seems very little doubt that this is asthma because I have text book symptom and my peak flow (I'm 45 years old, 11.2 stone and 5ft 5"") has yet to make it above 390 which I don't think is very good but I'm happy to be advised on that.
My big question is though, does asthma make you feel totally shattered or am I just getting old? Last week was particularly bad but I was outside all day, in fields at harvest time, working very hard but I was coming home and falling into bed at 7 to 7.30 after starting work at 1pm. I usually have a lot more gumption than that!!!
I'm waffling already. Hello again everyone.
