I'm very new to this sort of thing so here goes!! I'm 37 year old lady who was diagnosed with Asthma as a small child I have spent many months in hospital and having lots of different procedures done. I have got used to being an Asthmatic, what I can and can't do what foods to avoid and knowing the particular things that trigger my Asthma off that I try to stay away from. In the latter part of 2010 I kept getting a persistent chest Infection, cough etc after numerous CT Scan and X-rays in July 2011 I was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis finally I have a name to what has been causing me so many Problems with constantly feeling unwell I have been taught all the new breathing exercise's and my medication has been completely changed. Too be honest I'm finding it quite a different experience living with this new condition I'm ill every other month I'm currently on my third batch of Antibiotics and steroids still without any improvement and have been signed off work for the 2nd week. I'm worried that this is it for me now just a lifetime of feeling unwell every other month it's starting to grind me down now and want to get back to how I used to feel. I'm sick off telling people oh I have another infection and I see pity in there eyes, I just want to get my life back on track enjoying every opportunity that comes my way... Any body that has any advise will be gratefully received. Thanks Louise
