I was looking around to see if there was an asthma thread and found nothing so I decide to make this!
I find it comforting to talk about my condition and any worries or questions I may have about this so I thought it may benefit others too.
I’m [name_f]Edie[/name_f], 17 from [name_f]England[/name_f] and I have brittle (acute, severe, whatever you wanna call it) asthma. I was diagnosed at the age of 2 and my triggers are stress, anxiety, hay fever, colds, exercise and dust. I also have COPD and I am allergic to pollen and lactose. My asthma is most effected by anxiety, sometimes I become so anxious over something that I work myself into an asthma attack. Other times I can’t tell if I’m in the middle of a panic or asthma attack.
I really hope this thread takes off as I think it would be really beneficial
Why not introduce yourself?
