I have been reading the board and wanted to say hello.. I am from Qld Australia I hope that is ok.. I was diagnosed with brittle asthma in April of this year, I have never had asthma in my life. I have nearly died twice and hospitalized several times. I have had in adrenaline pumped into me for when I get too tired to fight and of course the bags and bags of prednisone which later found were not helping me anyway. My life now is completely slow down to where I am on a year extended sick leave.
It is a comfort to know that there are others out that do understand, my family and friends feel helpless, there is not a day goes by where I am not out of breathe. The only times I’m not is when I sit quiet and do nothing. The only medication I am on now is Ventolin and Seritide nothing else seems to be working.
I look forward to participating with the board
