Hi, I'm new here so be gentle haha. I've had asthma since I was 6 and been brittle asthmatic since I was 25, I've had a lot of hospital admissions over the past few years, sometimes 6 every 12 months. I've currently moved to Rotherham and been seen by an asthma specialist and a place called 'Breathing space' really good a mc feel a little more controlled. I have a nebuliser at home and have regular nebs four times a day plus when I need one.
Over Christmas and since I've been admitted four times, got flu over Christmas and pleurisy then another asthma attack, it's starting to get me down now, I always put a brave face on things for my partner and family and always smile but deep down its hard going, each admission is taking 2 weeks to recover and in having more oxygen each time. I've got a deep routed staff infection that they can't shift and scarring on my left lung, and I'm always open to infections and colds very easily.
Just be nice to hear from fellow people especially my age who have and suffer like me. Be nice to know it's not just me who's suffering.
