Any of you had to give up sports due to your asthma?
I used to run 5-10 k a few times a week but now it is only possible after a course of pred and generally when the weather is warmer.
I also used to do kickboxing - the same as running now - I last went before Christmas but I struggled so much my trainer looked really concerned - I felt ashamed and have not been back.
I am hoping (praying) that my sinus surgery enables me to start doing sports again - I can cope using an inhaler but dont want the steroids for the rest of my life - I am taking another course now.
I appreciate that there must have been an underlying cause for my asthma but I now realise that my job is probably the biggest factor in me becoming asthmatic (a policemans lot is not a lot) I think it is probably wise to look for something else - I am in my mid 40's with two young children - my youngest is 18 months old and has Down syndrome- we were warned during my wifes pregnancy that the markers were present - this turned out to be the case but we have a beautiful little boy. Looking back this was also a stressful time.
Best of luck everybody.
