This cruise did us a lot of good! Well mentally if not physically. ......
Asthma is tricky! I found my daughter aged six months wheezing away after an afternoon playing in the long grass in the park. My grandmother used a weird looking rubber contraption to cure her wheezing! So it runs in the family.
I had my first attack when I was 40! Up to then there had been no sign of the family ailment beyond summer colds I came to realise were hay fever!
When I lived in Lancashire I had maybe two attacks a year. I had none in North Wales, and only one in Essex in a barley field after a sharp fall of rain!
Since coming to Cornwall I have had no sign of it at all.
All this leads me to suppose that in my case clean air is vital....as it is for most sufferers I suppose!
I used to carry a spray around with me but havn't done that for years. However on one of the cruises after I'd had a chest infection the doctor gave me a spray to use on the plane going home.
This spray has been with me on the two subsequent cruises...Unused mostly. .
Now I'm home I fully expected the wheezing and coughing to subside....instead it's persisting!
My wheezing is quite musical....in the dark long reaches of the night I could almost play tunes on them!
David hears nothing....he takes his hearing aid off to go to bed! So my chest noises, rather like an ancient organ well passed it's best are unappreciated except by me!
I think I may need a new spray. It may be time to see the doctor!
