I have just accepted the fact that I am a true asthma sufferer at the age of 60!! The last 2 winters I have had several severe chest infections and I was treated with inhalers and steroids, including a 6 day stay in hospital. In my ignorance I thought it was just short term help but the last few months I have had a persistent cough and a visit to the doctor gave me a shock. 'you have asthma and need to take your inhalers all the time'. Talk about shock especially after yesterday when I had my first real full blown asthma attack. I was terrified and so was my husband. So now I am in need of support and information and any help you can give.
