Im looking for some advice on what is a big problem in my life right now.
I was diagnosed with asthma in 2006 at the age of 18. Since then things have been up and down with a few hospital admissions.
Since February this year things seemed to have settled down and I was even able to walk 4K for world asthma day.
I was due to be going a youth group trip to Ukraine in August and had paid all my money and spoken to my doctor who said I would be given extra medicines and as long as I was careful should be ok.
My youth group leader recently told me I cannot go because of my medical history and they are not equipt to cope with me, also there are long walks planned which I perhaps will not manage.
I understand where she is coming from but am gutted at the same time.
My problem now is that I told my doctor I am no longer going to Ukraine and he went mad, saying I could do them under disability discrimination. I don't want to fight with anyone and I dont even know how Id go about doing anything but I think my doctor knows me better and if hes saying I would cope then who are the youth group to say I cannot go as they know little about my medical condition.
Im trying to look to the future now but my doctor keeps on at me saying I shouldnt just accept the decision.
Any advice would be much appreciated
