My triggers as an asthma sufferer... take note if you battle with asthma too!

Here are some of my worse triggers:

cigarette smoke
perfume/aftershave smell
cleaning detergent smell
cold weather
physical exertion
head colds/flu

I have been feeling rundown for a while, and stressed... my dads death, ongoing infertility tests and treatments, hubby's lil op last month etc. then I got bad head cold 2 weeks ago and the weather is really cold... so a combination of all this I think ... head cold, weather and rundown.

I also should have gone to the doc/called an ambulance a lot quicker than I did - I tried to control it myself too long. The docs have given me a good talking to! I was coughing and wheezing so badly I wet myself.

Lance is back at work today, he took a few days off work to be with me, spent over 8 hours at hospital with me every day, he's so supportive, am so blessed to have a husband like him. Home is SPOTLESS, he bought new bed linen, did all the laundry etc.

Got to go, can't sit here for long, need to get back to bed.
