From what I?ve read (I?m not a doctor or health care professional) those on low to medium dose ICS (inhaled corticosteroids) are not at a greater risk, those on a higher dose may be, but they?re also possibly vulnerable due to the nature of their advanced disease anyway. But I believe there was a question around it back in March.However, if you?re concerned please contact your GP


For me moving out of London has helped my asthma considerably, I guess the air in our beloved city wasn?t doing me any good. So I?m happy I feel better, but I?m not cured of it, just less in need of the ICS since moving here to Sevenoaks.

It's Grays isn't it - I did Grays in Uni even though that was 1984 (unless Brexit means we go back to Imperial/US units).


My mum had cancer and diagnosed as terminal - they upped the radiation and it cured the cancer but she died of a hemorrhage a few years later - almost certainly brought on by the treatment - so really the cancer killed her but slowly (or did it).


Oh .. she also swore the cancer was a result of Chernobyl (not sure of that but it was a type that is usually caused by an environmental thing)

    • That is horrific.  I can't even believe that this a thing.  Really what planet do these so called humans live on...    It actually says that the little fluff balls will be gassed.    It should be illegal.  At least one person took the time to read the letter.   I am shocked.
    • Looking for some advice here! Our little one is sleeping, finally, but still gets upset when going to bed or waking up. Has anyone tried one of the star/galaxy projectors you can get for them at night, and does it distract and sooth them enough to send them to sleep? Recommendations are very welcome here, as there are many different options online, from the suspiciously cheap to eye wateringly expensive. Is it a case of you get what you pay for? Advice gratefully received! LL
    • Wouldn't it be better to have a stall at North Cross Road market with a board explaining what they do rather than obstructing the pavement by "explaining" to people what they do one by one?
    • PETA are on to it,  makes horrendous reading, thanks for bringing it to our attention.💔
