I used to get very frustrated sometimes
Once I had been diagnosed with asthma, I tried to rearrange my life accordingly. It dominated my life at first. Everything revolved around my illness. It took a while to get used to. To be honest, I found it pretty annoying at times. Although I had had asthma for a while and it had affected my life before too, I hadn’t been as aware of it then. Taking medication every day, using the inhaler, was sometimes a burden.
When I first found out that I had asthma I was in the middle of my studies. I had never been able to join in all the physical activities that other people had. I felt limited in the things I could do. I used to get very frustrated sometimes. I always used to think that I had to be as good as other people, always compared myself to them. I realize now what a waste of time that was. I never used to appreciate my own abilities, the things I was good at.
