Hi guys and girls
I'm new to the forum and this is my 1st post.
I've just been re-diagosed with asthma after not having inhalers for 12 years and its quite severe. My 9yr old daughter knew I was on inhalers and has seen me very breathless alot but hadn't seen me have an attack until a few mornings ago. It was a really bad attack and took me a long while to get myself out of it and she has been so panicky since even if I cough or take a deep breath she keeps running to me checking on me. My partner has been on nights and shes not slept through worrying about me, I was wondering if anyone knows of any books/panflets etc that could help me explain and perhaps ease her a little bit, I'm finding it hard being back with asthma and am struggling with how breathless and stuff I always am and it is heartbreaking to see her worrying so much at her age. I am at rock bottom at the minute with it all at the minute, my ""friends"" don't seem to understand how serious it is and the only people supporting me is my partner and my parents who are helping me with the children (I have a 1 yr old aswell) whilst I get myself back to some sort of normality and it really has knocked me for six. Any help or advice would be so greatly appreciated. Sorry for writing this essay and thank you for taking time to read this x
