I have been diagnosed with late onset asthma about a year ago. Really struggling to come to terms with it. I thought I had things pretty much under control with Symbicort and Montelukast but I caught a cold last week and had two days in hospital. Sent home with the usual steroids and antibiotics, but I just feel so hopeless. I was truly shocked at how fast I went from great to dreadful. Feeling pretty sorry for myself. Just joined the forum in the hope that I can connect with other people in the same boat!
