Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the help I’ve had from everyone on here over the last year or so. To those not in the know I’m at uni, and the worsening of my asthma has led my 4 year course to becoming 7... refused to stop due to stubbornness! You guys have supported me through med changes, hosp appts and diagnosis, attacks, and discrimination at college and a whole lot more!
I just wanted you all to know that I’ve finally sat my LAST EXAM!!! No results yet (for 1 piece of coursework and yesterday’s marathon - have to wait a couple more weeks) but 🤞 I’ve done enough to pass (the exam lasted 4.5hrs!). This despite a severe attack, 3 days of outpatient hydrocortisone treatment at my local (refused to stay in due to the exam), and a trip to Brompton for Xolair all happening since the thunderstorms last week 😬😅.
To those in similar situations (GSCEs/A level/uni) Good luck and keep going - it’s worth it. To those who tell you to quit (...because “we don’t want to to die on-site” 🤯🤬) I say 🖕screw you! Follow your dreams and be positive that you can achieve them despite you’re lungs rebelling and people trying to stop you!
🤞 now exams are over my lungs will truely start to behave as no stress and no allergies (I’ve had a big improvement since starting Xolair but multiple attacks due to illness, weather and exams/results). Bad atm from adrenaline come-down and results day may cause issues but I can actually say that I think the end is in sight!
Just wanted to spread a bit of cheer on here whilst I know a lot of people are struggling. Thank you all for your support and advice! 😘 Xxx
