This is  bad winter for asthma so far.  I'm trying to tackle this on two fronts, more exercise (I was badly behind owing to an elbow injury that prevented me working out properly for almost a month), and reducing the dust levels.

Richard's cleaning the lounge carpet.  This will help on the dust front.  Of course, the downside is that the damp levels go up for a couple of days.  Thus, I'm wheezing madly right now and on the verge of getting the shakes from too much ventolin.  As soon as he's finished the other end of the lounge, we're planning to go and dig up some more brambles and weeds and chunks of concrete.  This should be good both as exercise and getting fresh air.

Meanwhile, I'm off to spend the last of my birthday money on an allergen proof mattress cover as the old one wore out.

I agree about bad weather for breething. Ventolin still works, at least I don´t have to use it all the time - it´s seasonal. I dream about dry, hot sunny seaside...

Much sympathy. In damp weather I sometimes can't exercise which really makes me cranky.

Have you had your asthma-entitlement flu jab yet?

I'm torn about that, because the jab itself generally knocks me out for a day or two.
