Autumn and winter are always hard hitting months for me where my asthma is at its worst, and recently hit the lowest I have probably been in relation to my condition. What makes it worse is that some people closest to me still don't understand the severity of the condition. Especially when asthma reminds them of the character 'Piggy' From lord of the flies.
After my attack a few weeks ago I visited my doctors to see a poster for this organisation and support groups on the notice board. Accepting my condition probably wont ever get better that poster was a ray of light.
I think that the information that this website provides people such as myself and close family and friends of those who know someone that suffers from the condition is amazing. I really hope it makes a difference.
I can't go a day without needing my reliever and constantly wake up not breathing most nights. The fact that i've been browsing this site for 30 minutes and found that there are many people like me out there is a great comfort. I get so tired of fighting on a daily basis for my life and don't feel as strong fighter as I used to be; and this site has just given me a little ray of hope.
I hope this site continues to help people and raise awareness of Asthma.
