    Why do I have to be sick NOW?!

    Hey everyone,
    Over the past 5 days, I have been really sick. Yesterday and today are my coughing days. But it gets worse. Since I have Asthma, I have trouble breathing at my coughing stage of colds/sickness etc. I have really deep wheezing and I can't breathe properly. I go on my Ventilator machine and that helps me breathe for about 40 minutes-2hours! It supposed to last 3 hours. Then I got really bad because I was tired because I stayed up from quarter to 3 to 6 am! I had pains everywhere, headache, hot and cold flushes, really bad coughs and felt like c***. (Sorry for swearing ). We went to the Doctors and waited about 1 1/2-2 hours before the doctor called my name. I had a chest infection, which I always do when I get colds. They gave me antibiotics, tablet form and a new snazzy preventer. (My family calls them puffers). It has two-in-one and works (kinda) really well. I think it's Flixotide and another one, I think preventer, I'm not sure. I'm getting better, but I felt really bad because mum had to take me to the doctors when SHE was supposed to be going out with friends that night! I felt awful. Poor mum. Another bad thing is that since I am Girls School Captain, I go to a Young Leaders Conference at the Vodefone arena, in Melbourne, TOMORROW! I have been SOOO excited about it and have been waiting whole term for it but since I'm sick, I can not go. They are going to put someone in my place instead. I am so mad and sick and tired and have all these other feelings. I know it's the best thing not to go, because I have to get up at 6am, and I'll be back home at 5pm! I just couldn't do it. Life is so unfair some times.

    Sorry for the long read but I just HAD to get it out.

    Aww rach. Poor you. ((Big hugs))

    My 5 yr old daughter Ellie is just the same as you. She's suffered with Asthma since she was about 18mnths. And everytime she gets a cold, its a long one, and automatically goes to her chest. Which in turn effects her breathing badly. I feel so sorry for her. :(
    We call them "Puffers" too.
    I'm sure your mum wont of minded missing her night out, she'll of been concerned and worried about her girl.
    Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Hope you are feeling a bit better. I don't have asthma but when I get a cold it always turns into bronchitis and I end up on a "puffer" and have to go in for wheezer (some sort of breathing machine) treatments. I know you must feel really bad about missing your conference but its for the best that you take care of yourself. Chin up, and get better

    I hope you feel better!

    Thanks guys. Maan I love the people on this forum. Good news, I'm getting WAY better and I've stopped the hard wheezing and breathing. But I still have to take my medication. The tablets taste YUCK! But, I know if I want to get better, I'll still have to take them.....
