Hi I'm after some advice I'm 35 an had asthma all my life always been bad with it but got a lot worse about 5 years ago.
Since then I have been diagnosed as having brittle asthma and Bronchiectasis I take a lot of meds and am under the Brompton yet my asthma is still out if control and most recently I had a bad attack that required me to be put in a coma and on a ventilator I was lucky I survived.
I struggle with most things every day and have a constant wheeze and always short of breathe I don't go out much as my breathing is so bad and rely on my kids to help around the house.
I have been told by friends that I might qualify for DLA, but am in two minds as to if I should make a claim or not? Has any one else made a claim and been successful? I always thought that asthma was one of the things you couldn't get it for but I struggle daily and do have care and mobility needs and those who have asthma as bad as I do will understand.
