Hey, I'm new to all this. I've never really considered doing a support group but I feel like this is my only way of people understanding me.
I've had asthma since I can remember, gradually it's getting worse. It's effecting every aspect of my life, it's ruining my life. I'm petrified and I'm so sick and tired of fighting with my own body.
I've been the the hospital, gp, asthma nurses and specialists, they fix me up and send me packing, no long term help just fix the current flare up. Every day is living hell for me :( I get no support from any medical professionals that I see (when I see them) I feel like I'm talking to a brick wall half the time. I feel like I'm drowning on dry land. Sometimes it's like, why bother using my preventer during an asthma attack, if I don't then I may never have to bother with fighting against myself, I won't be awake all night and tired all the time, people would stop worrying about me. I'm 21 nearly 22, I've got my whole life ahead of me but I'm barely scraping by on every day things. I could really use people who understand my troubles and that can offer advice for thing I could try etc. If there's any other medication I can ask for as I'm currently on the highest of everything :/
Thanks in advance xxx

I get this strange feeling in my throat and then all of a sudden my heart starts racing and of...
VA commands I return at two today for another exam to listen to the rice crispies in my lungs. They want to admit me but being caregiver for adult son with Down's syndrome doesn't leave a lot of options there. Beyond that two cats, two dogs, eight fish
