This post really isn't about physical recovery but more about emotional recovery, I have had 3 ITU admissions in the past 2 months for my asthma, one of them was particularly intense and has left me feeling more than a little shaken. I have flash backs, bad dreams, intense memories of the situation and sometimes it feels as though I am reliving it...I have sort help from my GP and have a referral to speak to someone but not until the middle of November, I am now really struggling to get on with everyday life, I become distracted I am exhausted physically and emotionally and feel like the roller coaster ride will never end. I am also faced with the prospect that my asthma will deteriorate rapidly again and I will need to go back to the hospital again, I am not being pessimistic I have had this condition for 19 years since I was a teenager so I know its rhythms and quirks and I know it will happen again. In the past I have coped well with ITU admissions but this time it seems totally overwhelming...any ideas as to how to move on and get on with things would be greatfully received...thank you
