Angry I am sick of having Asthma.

I having been dealing with Asthma stuff for 11 years and I am fed up. I ended up in the Er thrus. morning because my chest hurt and I couldn't breath. They give me breathing treatments with Oxygen and a course of steroids to take. I am doing breathing treatments ever 4 hrs at home and taking another inhailer as well. But I am just sick of it all, I hate when I have attacks, I want to be able to go jog with my dog, I went to the store today and time I got home I needed a treatment. I want to be able to breathe normally. I am just so drained. Sorry, I needed to vent, I feel like if I have one more freaking thing go wrong, I am going blow up and go insane. I already have a pinched nerve and now asthma issues too. ahhhh.

Lightbulb Re: I am sick of having Asthma.

Ok I am feeling a bit better now, I just get a tad frusterated sometimes and besides I think the prednisone is making me moody. I just need to take it easy for a few days.

Re: I am sick of having Asthma.

Sorry to hear you're feeling bad. Hang in there! And yes, I turn into psycho woman when I'm on prednisone. I am sick of having allergies. I don't experience many asthma symptoms when I'm healthy, but it seems like I am plagued with never ending allergy symptoms, ie runny nose every morning, sneeze over and over and over. Well, enough complaining. Hope you feel better soon.

Re: I am sick of having Asthma.

Harmony, I'm sorry you're having a rough time right now..the moddiness can be due to the prednisone. DO you goto an asthma specialist? Maybe a consult with an asthma specialist is needed, because you should be able to control your asthma and live an uneffected life with only the occasional need for your rescue meds. Feel free to vent though, I know how frusterating this disease is.

Re: I am sick of having Asthma.

Yes I go to Asthma specialist, but it seems like I have my good days and my bad days. Sometimes, I can go months without an attack, and sometimes I can't. Depends on if I can avoid my triggers or not.


Thanks to all for replying and reading my post.
It helps sometimes just to let it out.

Re: I am sick of having Asthma.

Hi Harmony. I've had asthma all my life, so I know a bit about it. Those inhalers help, but at a price. They are not too good for you in big doses. Sometimes you have to take drastic steps. My asthma until the age of 20 was mainly due to a pet allergy - my family's dogs (which I loved, but couldn't be near) - and the fact that we had fitted carpets everywhere. I didn't sleep a single night without waking up wheezing until I left home. Now it's much better. I have a wooden floor, no carpet and no pets. I'd love to have a dog, but I wouldn't be able to stand the distance there would have to be - I wouldn't be able to play with it, it would have to sleep outside etc.
It's a shame, but in the end, my health is more important to me.

Re: I am sick of having Asthma.

I can understand your frustration, I have also known people with chronic asthma, totally self reliant on inhalers and feeling they have no life without them, but at the same time still not quite living the life they want, being out of breath when they run too far, exercise. My friend has actually found a perfectly natural remedy for asthma, which has taken her off her inhaler completely, and being a gym fanatic , attends regularly 3-4 times a week without her wheezing and lack of breath.

Harmony
So glad to see you are starting to feel better. I know 95% of the time I'm upbeat and cheerful,,,but there are those times when Asthma seems to win a little bit. I think it's normal,,,just plain human nature.
Continue to feel better
