I don't know what the hell is so wrong with me that anyone would treat me like this, but it feels like $#!t.

Greetings, diana, NOTHING is wrong with you. Switch that pronoun to make it apply to him.

Of course it still feels like $#!t anyway, so that part still needs reckoning. But you, YOU'RE fine and deserving and beloved - for sure, around here. Even that crappy old asthma business may not end up having to be permanent or long-term, necessarily either - the precursor to a final diagnosis of asthma is RAD, "reactive airway disease," in which you can develop all the symptoms of asthma with persistent cough, wheeze, sometimes mild low oxygen, and once cleared up it could end up going away altogether. It's an asthma-like flare in response to some prior insult, like an upper respiratory viral infection (and we know you didn't have anything like one of THOSE recently, eh ;-) ?) The treatment for RAD is the same as treatment for asthma, only the chronicity is different, and I am hoping that your current bout decides to resolve over time in full.

((((((( dianakalt ))))))) Here's hoping that your boyfriend steps up and decides to deal with you forthrightly. You've always been a "shoot from the hip", fully honest and direct approach-taker so I am hoping he will find his spine and face you.
