This is a headline on the BBC news website today.
The article continues by saying ' as a result a child is admitted to hospital every 20 minutes with an asthma attack.....and asthma attacks still kill the equivalent of a classroom of children every year in the U.K.'
I know my daughters were handed Ventolin inhalers , many years ago now, after wheezy chests were diagnosed. I also remember the rows of inhalers that suddenly appeared , again many years ago, when I was still teaching.
I still get the comment myself, ' oh , it's only asthma you've got' from friends and acquaintances even when I am struggling to breathe.
Perhaps someone can put a direct link up for me to the BBC news website. Thanks
I hope this doesn't scare anyone ....it is a difficult subject.
I am not locking this post....just to let you know...thanks
