don't you find when you on a real bad patch it makes you feel real crappy. I have bad asthma and when i get a bad patch it can have me in and out of hospital for 2 to 3 weeks. i find it really holds me back. I wanna go off to uni and study paramedic science but how can i save other peoples lives if I cant breath myself. I struggled through college as the stress put me in hosp alot and i fell behind and then because I was behind i got more stressed.I was one big nightmarish circle.im scared I may never get it under control and will end up a nobody with a crappy job that i hate and pays crap.because im the only one in my family with asthma it can also make me feel very alone as i often have to sit out of family events that i physically am unable to do. i can make me feel really isolated.
