I am Mark
I suffer from severe / complicated Asthma, and following years of steroid usage to help control my asthma I now also have steroid induced diabetes.
I was diagnosed with asthma while in my teens but the condition has become much worse over the last 5 or 6 years. On average I have 2 or 3 fairly lengthy hospital admissions each year.
I am now 45 years old, just about holding down a full time job and married (with no children). I live in the town of Grimsby on the east coast of England, though I was born in Yorkshire.
I believe that I have come to terms with my condition(s) and accept that everything now is about control rather than cure.
Somedays are tough, others are a breeze, life goes on!
