Hi everyone, my name is Kelsey and this is my first post here. I’m 25 and have had asthma since I was little, but it has gotten increasingly worse in my 20s. I was in the hospital for 5 days last week and have now been out for a week but am still on the struggle bus. This has been my worst flare ever and I’m just feeling quite discouraged. I got RSV which was what led to me having to be in the hospital on high flow. I’ve been home now and was doing a lot better but my peak flows were trending down again and my left lung was feeling particularly junky so I went back to the Dr and low and behold I have pneumonia. I can’t say I’m surprised as this is not the first time, but I’m just discouraged. I have been so good over this 2.5 weeks about taking everything, not missing nebs, eating well, staying out of the cold…you name it I’ve done it. I was even almost off the prednisone and had moved to q6 nebs. Now I’m back on a boat load of pred, pulmicort nebs, q4 duonebs, and antibiotics on top of all the usual suspects. I was talking to one of the RTs at the hospital about how I don’t know a lot of people that “get it” and he recommended I reach out on this forum as it’s a great community. So as I enter into week 3 of this **** does anyone have similar experience of just not being able to to kick a bad flare, or have any advice in general on the recovery phases of this kind of flare. Thanks for reading.
