For as long as I can remember I have had chronic asthma. My doctors used to think that it was exercise induced, and I would grow out of it, but as I got older, it not only didn’t go away; it got worse.
As I was doing a show every 6 weeks in high school, my primary function was to stay healthy enough to do the show, and then audition for the next one. Oh- and also to take all 6 of my classes and maintain a near perfect average. Due to my asthma, I was more prone to illness.
