Whoops, I meant that I have a reliever -blue, and a preventer -steroid inhaler

I have asthma but don't need a preventative inhaler just a blue one every now and then.

I'm still going to work, I'm a hca so feel like I'd be really skiving if I didn't go in. Will obviously self isolate if I get any symptoms.

I had the flu a few years ago and it nearly killed me off. I was only 19. I'm pretty scared tbh.

I'm a TA, had asthma since I was 10, have a steroid and preventative inhaler and have the flu jab every year, I've had pneumonia once, it was awful. I think I am in the vulnerable category, but feel like I'm skiving, I want to help, but equally I don't want covid-19. Just had an email from school, I'm self isolating at mo, about working next week and over Easter.

I have asthma,I'm still at work ( public facing) .Because all the guidance says working from home is "strongly advised",but my job is not one which can be done from home.
If you haven't had treatment since you were 15 I really don't think you count as having asthma now.

If you don’t get a free flu jab then I wouldn’t bother.

I am a TA in a primary school. I had asthma as a child until I was in the last year of high school. Well...that's when my symptoms stopped showing. I am now 30. I've been told I should be in school still from monday. School dont even know about my asthma. Do I mention it or not. It's been 15 years.
