Just got to give a big big THANKS to Debbi the wonderful asthma nurse I spoke to on Wed via the helpline , it was so reassuring to speak to someone who fully understands my condition. I would encourage anybody else who is struggling or is just unsure of any aspect of their treatment to use the helpline.
Unfortunately I am now on steroids for at least a week but I aim to see my GP early next week with a view to getting a referral to a Difficult Asthma clinic under the care of a specialist team. As it's seasonal I might be too late for this year, but there are other things she suggested which I can discuss with the doc.
Keep as well as possible,
