My son Thomas has had brittle asthma since he was nine months old - he is now 12 years old. Even after all of this time I am still terrified when he starts to have an attack and he has had many.
We have finally being given a nebuliser at home and that has helped as well as having the steroids at home to administer after a phone call to the doctor. But I am always scared it will not work.
I had always hoped he would grow out of it but no luck so far. I guess I am feeling a bit sorry for myself tonight as it is like living with a permanent cloud over us - always waiting for the next attack. I just feel very tired by it all.
