I've recently had a pretty bad flare-up of my asthma symptoms, forcing me to be rushed to hospital last week on nebulisers and prednisolone. I'm sixteen and until last year, my asthma seemed to be pretty well-controlled. However, last June I ended up in hospital with pneumonia, and the result= my asthma has got a hell of a lot worse. I get excerbations when the weather is too cold, too hot, when there is a high pollen count, if I run for a bus, if I run at all really. I feel like it's taking over my life. Secondly, I have an awful GP who doesn't listen to anything i've ever said, hasn't written me an 'asthma action plan' and only prescribes me with two salbutamol inhalers per month! (I normally use at least three.)
I'm currently on seretide, but I'm just sick of having constant asthma attacks. My GCSE exam period has just started and yet I've had to take a lot of time off school recently and in the past year. I feel like I'm not in control and I'm juggling with my own life, thanks to the rubbish service of doctors and the 'helpful' NHS.
