As well as using this forum to ask questions and to gain information and support that has been invaluable as someone who has had my first worrying problem with my asthma, I saw the Practice Asthma Nurse today and now have an Asthma Action Plan.
After going back and forth to the Drs for some 7 weeks I was beginning to feel like 'the bad penny' turning up so often but the asthma nurse actually encouraged me to go back to see the doctor or herself if I was concerned or my condition worsened.
As a 65 year old I can now understand for the first time why some older people don't want to 'bother' others even when they have genuine health issues but I'm going to challenge that myth and (a) look after myself and (b) use the services that are there for all of us, without feeling guilty 👍👍
I was able to ask lots of questions and I feel much more relieved now.
I have found this site to be so helpful - thanks 😊
