I was wondering if anyone had experiences to share about how they coped with their asthma at uni particularly in their final year with the unavoidable increased work load?
I'm in my final year of a 4 year course. I was doing primary teaching but for health reasons dropped the QTS component and my degree title is now a Bsc in Educational Studies and IT. But with it has come two 6000 word independent learning units to make up for the credits I have lost from dropping the teaching element. I'm able to complete the other modules I would have done on my teaching degree and have stayed with my friends. It was hoped both lots of 6000 words would have been done by the beginning of feb to coincide with the start of semester 2 and my new modules but due to illness over Christmas I'm still writing one of the essays.
I'm finding it so hard to juggle all the work and my asthma as well as trying to have some me time. A social life is out of the question at the moment and although my tutor said I can take as long as I like to complete the ILU I feel I need it out of the way because I cannot focus on my new modules properly.
My asthma has worsened in the last 4-5 weeks and I know it is because of the uni stress but I wish I could just make it go away, just for a few days so I can get some solid studying in. I don't know if I want to throw the laptop or the inhaler out of the window at the moment.(Don't worry I wont do either!) I just wondered if there were others out there who have been / or are going through this now and if so how did you cope?
I feel guilty to moan as I usually just get on with things and I know there are people in worse situations.
