Hi all I am fairly new to this. I am 47 years old. Had asthma for 20 years. But the last few years I am finding it difficult to cope with the breathlessness. I am getting more bouts of being out of breath and it takes ages to sort it out. I can be fine one moment and with little warning get bad and have to sit down and I am having so much time off from work I am worried my job will be the next thing to go. I am a divorced mother but get no help from ex husband. I feel that if I can just learn to breath like everyone else then I will be ok. But as you all know it's not that simple. I am sorry for feeling like this because when I read what some of you are coping with I think I am very lucky. I have a lot of admiration for everyone on here. You are all so brave. I usually don't wallow in self pity but just had such a bad 2 weeks of being unable to do things for myself and children I think it's guilt I am really feeling. I feel better for being able to write this down as I could never tell my family how I feel because I see how worried they are. Best of luck and health to you all xx
