Hi , I’ve been having problems with my asthma since the end of November. I have rescue pred and antibiotics and suffer from severe brittle asthma. My asthma has been well controlled until recently and I have lost 6 stone which has helped immensely but since November it’s all gone downhill. I tried to manage it myself when it first went off and had 3 weeks of increased pred and various antibiotics ( I have to have double length courses due to immune problems) . In the end on 18th it all became too much and i went downhill really fast . The paramedics had to give me adrenaline and hydrocortisone and I was blue lighted to hospital. I’m normally given iv aminpohylline but managed without it and after 10 days was discharged home. One day after being home my temp spiked at 38.4 and I was coughing up green gunk so back on the antibiotics. My pred has been reduced to 30 mg and a visit to the Gp after the bank holiday has seen me back to 40mg. But I’m still on antibiotics, still on nebs and still feeling rough. I’ve been told I’ve got to have a low threshold for going back into hospital but I can’t face it again. My asthma is not to bad although very wheezy I’m not that breathless. But I just can’t cope with feeling so rough and doing nothing. I feel like a prisoner in my own home and totally alone and I’m having flashbacks from when the paramedics saw me as I was at a special day care unit/I attend and the nurses say I was in and out of consciousness. I can’t face going into hospital again as I suffer from dis functional breathing as well as they always immediately jump on that and I feel judged. They just they give me oramorph to relax me and then I am just a blob and don’t remember anything and last admission was falling a lot. I feel so alone , so unwell so scared and just a nuscience, where do I turn , what do I do . I’ve been feeling ill now for nearly 6 weeks .
