Woman reveals how a passionate sex session could kill her

Published

A woman who was recently diagnosed with severe asthma has revealed how scared she is anytime she’s about to have sex. According to Callie-Anne Skevington, she knew she had to kill the sexual mood before it killed her after she found out that sex triggered the terrifying symptoms of a potentially deadly attack.

According to report, she said;  “I started wheezing loudly and felt like my chest was about to explode because I couldn’t get air out of my lungs,”. “I had to stop things and grab my reliever inhaler. It was such a turn-off and I was mortified. “We’d only just got married but the idea of having sex was suddenly terrifying.”

Callie, then 27, had lived a relatively normal life up till this point.

Although she had asthma – a respiratory condition that kills three people every day – she was able to keep it under control with medication.

Mum-of-two Callie – who has daughter aged 12 and a son of nine – was planning her wedding to Lee. She was also training to be a teacher. But by 2013, her symptoms were getting worse and harder to treat. “I’d only been hospitalized twice in 10 years – now it was 12 times in 10 months,” she says.

“I went from being energetic and busy to struggling to walk and talk some days. I had to give up my dancing and couldn’t work for the two months prior to our wedding in October 2013. Lee lost his job and we had to cancel our honeymoon. It was so stressful.”

Soon afterwards Callie was diagnosed with severe asthma – a condition which affects one in 20 asthma sufferers, and means symptoms can’t be controlled with the usual medications.

“It should have been the honeymoon period, where we couldn’t keep our hands off each other,” says Callie. “But I was housebound, isolated and reliant on Lee to care for our home and children. “High-dose steroid treatment that made me hungry, and the lack of exercise, meant I put on weight and became self-conscious and anxious.

“The asthma attack during sex was unnerving for both of us, especially as I was hospitalized the following day. We tried again a couple of weeks later but the same thing happened and I gave up initiating any intimacy.”

Struggling to enjoy sex is a hidden side effect of asthma, with many admitting that the condition directly affects their sex life.

Nigeria General Elections postponement not politically influenced – INEC

Published

on

Nigeria’s electoral body, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has cleared the air, saying its decision to postpone the general elections a few hours to the commencement was not politically influenced.



INEC chairman Mahmoud Yakubu said at a press conference that “The decision has nothing to do with security, nothing to do with political influence and nothing to do with lack of resources.”

The postponement heightens the political tensions in the country, especially between the ruling All Progressives Congress and the main opposition People’s Democratic Party.

Nigeria: Reactions trail INEC Postponement of 2019 General Elections

Published

on

Reactions have trailed the decision of The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to postpone the Presidential and National Assembly elections earlier slated for today by a week, citing operational difficulties.



Prior to the postponement of the election, the PDP accused INEC of hoarding the presidential and senatorial elections result sheets for undisclosed reasons.

The party also revealed that its monitoring and intelligence showed that INEC had been distributing sensitive election materials in most states of the federation without the Presidential and Senatorial elections results sheets.

The National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement said that the party’s agents were being denied the INEC accreditation and identification cards, ostensibly to shut them out of the election monitoring process and allow the APC a field day to manipulate the process.

According to him, “The development is already heightening tension and suspicion of underhand method by the commission to open the elections for manipulations and allow the APC to enter fictitious results for onward transmission to collation centres.”

The PDP also rejected alleged substitution of the already trained INEC adhoc staff in various states of the federation with members of the APC.

The party said that PDP would never allow “this unscrupulous attempt at power hijack to stand.”

He stated, “This surreptitious ploy to use APC members as polling staff is a direct template by the APC in collusion with some INEC officials, to rig the elections for the APC.

“This affront to the collective quest by the people for a credible election is akin to sitting our nation on a keg of gunpowder.”

A renowned political analyst in Lagos state, Isaac Abiola on his part expressed displeasure at the postponement, citing the electoral body’s insincerity the worrisome part.

Mr Abiola said “I am disappointed with INEC. It is obvious that they are not sincere with us. INEC till 11:30pm yesterday claimed to have been ready and even tweeted that their situation room was ready. It is not a must to conduct elections when you are not fully ready. But the decision to postponed should have been reached and announced at least 24hrs before election. Why announce 2:30am when people were sleeping. I feel there is an arrangement somewhere.”

Also Reacting to the postponement, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ahmed Raji, noted that if the postponement was towards achieving a credible, free and acceptable election, it is in order. According to him, if the reason for the postponment is actually on logistics as it is being said, it is okay instead of the Commission to go ahead and conduct an election that would put it to ridicule both locally and internationally.

Raji, while stating that it is high time Nigerians begin to see election as a process, observed that budgetary allocation for the elections came a little bit late.

According to him election materials are not things people just pick from the shop, hence the commission needs adequate time to plan and arrange for some of this materials.

He said the responsibilities of leaders was to deliver good governance, secure the lives of Nigerians, ensure that they promote justice, rule of law, peace and freedom through their actions.



Meanwhile, the opposition People’s Democratic Party presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar said the postponement of the general election by Independent National Electoral Commission is “obviously a case of the hand of Esau but the voice of Jacob.”

“The Buhari administration has had more than enough time and money to prepare for these elections and the Nigerian people were poised and ready to perform their civic responsibility by voting in the elections earlier scheduled for Saturday, 16 February, 2019,” Atiku said in a stateemnt on Saturday.

“By instigating this postponement, the Buhari administration hopes to disenfranchise the Nigerian electorate in order to ensure that turn out is low on the rescheduled date,” he added.
