I have been looking at this website for a few weeks now and have found it to be very informative, helpful and friendly,so I would very much like to join you friendly bunch. I have been asthmatic for about 35 years, my breathing was getting worse, doctor finally sent me for tests, then I ended up in hospital with pneumonia last year, very ill, finally had a ct scan and have been diagnosed with bronchi ecstasies, constant chest infections that come on without warning. When I am well I am ok, but when I am ill, I am really bad. It is almost a relief to find people suffering the same, who understand how you feel, I look forward to being a part of your group.

  • Hi Shirley, a very warm welcome to this wonderful site. I too have Bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis and invasive aspergillus. No asthma thank heavens although both my kids have. Isn't it great to have sites like this where people understand exactly what you are going through. I am a regular at the Bronchiectasis R Us site, it is full of really useful info and another great bunch of caring knowledgable people.

  • You have all been most welcoming, thank you so much :)
