When my shortness of breath is very severe, it tremendously affects my concentration. As a most unfortunate case in point, I just accidentally deleted the second examination that I finished writing for my General Psychology students.
This is incredibly frustrating! I don’t mind working hard, but I really dislike having to repeat my work. Thankfully, I have a good memory. Nevertheless, I will now have to rewrite the entire exam.
Having impaired concentration with shortness of breath makes sense, of course. I simply can’t wait to see my ENT surgeon next week.
