Have had Asthma many years and have been able to keep a good control without too many "bad times" Two years ago was having alot of trouble through those winter months. I went to the Dr, who sent me for X rays, they came back. Oh youve COPD now, do this do that, bye bye. Being a stubborn one its only in the last 6 months that Ive managed to stop the smoking. Various visit to Asthma nurse through the year, who has always been a nasty bit of work to talk to, and others I know all have said the same, and like those I gave up on her. This morning I went to see if my Dr would send me to a PR course, OK ! I'll get " so and so to refure you. When I got in tonight a message on the phone from that wonderful A Nurse said. Hello its blah blah, Dr say's you want to go on a PR at such and such hospital. Well I dont think you qualify as you are not bad enough. Well thats the kind of crap some of us have to put up with. The week before I joined a new Breath Easy club a few miles away, they asked if we could spread the news, so I took a poster to my surgery, and NO they wont put it up. I really am feeling very angry at the moment that I care about my future health, by wanting to learn at a PR clinic, and my own Dr's wont put up a poster. I did ask the woman at reseption about the poster, all I got was I dont know nothing about it. Its to promote the BLF breath easy clubs for people with copd etc etc. I really have had enough.
