My name is Susie and I post on some ofthe other boards, crohns, chronic pain, UC, depression and now here. Not new to allergies at all or asthma. I always spell it wrong. I also have COPD from smoking and years of bronchitis. Recently while in the hospital the end of January my sats were dropping so low I had to be put on oxygen. I have been on oxygen since. It has really made me feel so much better. Prior to being put in the hospital let me list a few things that were going on. My drs were trying to find out why I was doing some of this stuff never thought it was due to oxygen deprivation. I was falling alot, falling asleep even while standing, sometimes words came out that made no sense and saying I was fatigued is an understatement.
After being on oxygen this all went away. I take Advair, Albuterol Inhaler, Spireva, nebulizer meds and one other med at bedtime. I am coming off of a bout with bronchitis, 2nd time since Jan. Its so hard to get over this mess. I also take meds for the CD that can lower the immune system.
We recently lost a very good friend to asthma, he was only 41 with a baby under 2, just heart breaking. Recently, anothe family lost their 11 yr old daughter to it and hers had been under control. Its a disease that is very serious no matter.
Just wanted to hi & introduce myself. Susie
