Comment from friend who also has a chronic illness (not asthma) when I was saying how much I miss work.
Friend: 'Well of course I HAVE to work, I can't afford not to so I just MAKE myself.'
Well, I'm sorry, but the last time I 'made myself' go back to work, in June, after three days I ended up on ITU on non-invasive ventilation. Not really sure how choice comes into that one... (or perhaps I should be 'making myself' not have respiratory failure, nice trick if you can do it)
As for not being able to afford not to, well it ain't a barrel of laughs money-wise over here either, with husband a full time student...
Okay, I feel better now.
