My cousin Robyn (23 years old) died on Saturday night, from an asthma attack.
I am in tears.... cannot begin to describe the terror one feels when having a severe attack, and to know what this dear girl went through the last minutes of her life. We've been in more contact than usual this last year thankfully, as she was looking to become an actress, and was keen to visit London. Was so in love - had met her 'soul mate' too.
Such a bright little star, snatched away so easily.
Asthma is not taken seriously enough by so many people. People do not realise how many people die from it. I wish I could just get on a plane right now to Joburg. Not sure how I'll get through this day. Too raw.
