I'm 39 years old and have suffered with Asthma my entire life... Drug wise I take Seretide 250 / Alvesgo 160 / Carbocisteine / Azithromycin / Montelukast / Ventolin - I have been under a specialist at the hospital for many years now and a few years ago my asthma was well controlled - but now unfortunately it's not... I have just come out of hospital after my asthma going completely wobbly because of the cold weather (I'm sure a lot are suffering atm)
My asthma nurse at the hospital is putting me intouch with a psychotherapist and apparently this is normal for someone with ""Chronic Asthma"" I wondered if anyone else had been to see a psychotherapist and whether it has helped any???? If this is only used for someone to come to terms with the disease then I think after 39 years of having this I might have come to terms with it by now... Do the hospital think i'm going mad?????
I feel I'm on so many drugs - why isn't my asthma responding????? or is it and i'm just having a bit of bad luck?????
Sorry for the semi rant and questions - would love to hear from you...
