I started to write this at 9.30am was almost finished when I touched the wrong key and lost what I've written, I have an iPad and so far have not found out how to save like you can on a pc.. The problem also is I have forgotten how I put this together, so will try again. I have just read poetic lady and others saying this site should get back to helping and supporting each other and I agree.
I have been really depressed since end of September, awaiting results etc, but have been reading what's been going on, and thought I would leave just like Rose.
I made a comment on AnneGodolphin post (not much known) it was in answer to Mark Pillings BLF. He stated that Chronic Asthma was not under the same umbrella as COPD because it was reversible. It's another story but I got a printed copy from GPs recpt of my hospital results
I have been diagnosed with Chronic Asthma,, I have had asthma since a child. It appears
it is now much worse,, it also states FEV/FVC of 65 with NO reversibility I am to remain on seretide and sprivia plus ventolin. I stated that to mark, and also the medicinenet.com
Where it stated that it did come under (umbrella of COPD ) there seems to be some confusion between the medical world, when all serious lung diseases were COPD and now only emphysema and chronic bronchitis are classed. Also that 'they' always state that chronic asthma is reversible.
My point to mark was not answered only another (helpful supportive) member told me very clearly to GET OVER MYSELF, suggesting I wanted to get under the umbrella of COPD.
Anyway my husband arranged a lovely weekend break. I feel so much better, that person is not worth me worrying about.
Maybe I was too sensitive at the time, but I can understand how Rose felt, I will not leave this site for having an opinion and wanting answers. I am sorry for having to get this off my chest (no pun intended) I am acutely aware of people on this site who are very very ill and do not what to hear or should I say read this nonsense. I just felt that I had to write this down.
Wishing everybody a good day.
