I have had asthma for years and generally its under control, however after repeated infections needing crazy antibiotics and then steroids eventually after scans was informed I had Bronchiectasis. Thank god it doesnt plague me 24/7 but when it does, like now, I could scream. I'm sat down almost not moving because of a racking cough, horrible plegm stuff. I have no antibiotics at home, almost every recent doctors visit he will not prescribe anything for fear I become immune to them, I think thats the reasoning! I have Ventolin inhaler as and when required, and Symbicort morning and night. How on earth do I distinguish between a chest cold and a bug eating my insides out? This is very scarey on my own, I live in a remote area of Scotland, 30 miles from a town with hospital or chemist facilities. I try sitting calmly to relax my breathing as much as possible, each coughing fit sends me panicing yet again. Yes feeling sorry for myself, but does it make anybody else just want to give up, full stop?
