Now I know too some of you, the title may seem like a bit of an exaggeration, but if you are a young athlete like me, then the last thing you want to hear, is that you have asthma. You worry that it might affect your performance, or even that it might stop you ever having a career in sports.
For a couple of years now my breathing has just been getting worse, I find it very hard to do anything that involves stamina because after a short while it feels as though my lungs close up, so I can’t breath, and this morning I went to the doctor to finally get it checked out and well I got told I almost certainly have asthma. At first I was quite upset and shocked, because I thought that it meant that I no longer had a future in athletics, but the doctor was quick to reasure me that with modern technology, that having asthma does not hold you back in anyway and that many professional athletes themselves suffer from it! xx
So Don’t fear, if you are an athlete that suffers from asthma it is not the end of the world! You just have to stay positive and not let it hold you back!
