The allergy one does make sense. Especially since I'm finally allergic to cats, but that's never made me wheeze like I've been doing, just causing itchy eyes. At first I didn't think the Advair would work; I was having trouble using it and I nearly gave up at first because I didn't feel better, but after a week it started working. The only thing that stops me thinking it's all allergies is that I took Zyrtec for a month and it only helped a little as regards the sneezing.
I've recently become stressed enough to cause me to feel tight chested, that's true, but this has been going on longer than a couple of weeks and the stress isn't constant; the source is this week's standardized testing (which for some stupid reason is 4 days long this time) and once it's over, I never have to take it again. The only other source of stress I can think of is arguing with my brother about his bad videogame habits (screaming and yelling at people incessantly), but I can usually calm myself down with a book in my room so I don't know if that could be it.
My doctor thinks I may have asthma because both sides of my family had it; my uncle on my dad's side had it through his childhood and teen years, but grew out of it, and my mom's brother still has asthma to this day. I don't go back to my doctor officially until mid June, but Mom says that if I keep coughing like this I'm going back. I really don't want to, but she's getting tired of it too.
Well, Mom took me to the doctor's today and he's put me back on Advair, as well as putting me on Singulair; I'm to go back on June 19 to see if it's really working. I had a coughing fit last night, and my mom described it as a barking cough; he wanted to know if there was any wheezing involved, and I told him yes, I started wheezing whenever I was trying to sleep. He's pretty sure it's asthma now. :\ I give up.
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
