    Default Friggen over asthma

    All three of mine have it with ds#2 being the worse and dd is looking to be the same

    They all have a big flare up at the same time and im over it.

    Ds#2 needs prednisone but will he ever ever ever take a drop of medicine? No. So 12 puffs of ventolin every two hours.

    Im sick of it. The baby is on the nebuliser every 2-3 hours...

    We had a bad winter, a bad one... It was meant to get better. But no.. Of course not.

    Sorry this is just a vent.

    Im a chronic asthmatic and my childhood was in and out of hospital, on prednisone every 6 weeks and that stuffed me up. Dd is only 9.5 months and been on it 5 times already. >_<

    I feel your pain. Asthma is a giant pain in the butt - and spring certainly doesn't help matters at all!

    I hope things get better for you all soon ...

    Was just thinking this...It's horrible isn't it. My DS seems to be in a cycle of coughing, wheezing flares up, we treat, he gets well for 4 days then the chesty coughs start again...it just seems never ending.

    I can not wait for winter to be over!

    I can only imagine how much you are over it. My DD gets very mild asthma with only a couple of episodes over winter each year, usually only requiring prednisone for a few days with one of the flare ups, the rest of the time we can manage it with her puffer, and I find it very stressful, so I do sympathise with your situation, it sounds awful.

    Thanks everyone. Its so stressful! Everytime they have a coughing fit i think "is this going to be an attack?" "Will i need to rush them to hospital?" It takes so long to get better too >_<

    I didnt do anything in my pregnancies that could cause this, so it must be genetic, just another struggle they got from me :,(:,(
