(23. februar 2008) I’ve found out that asthma is unpredictable. At least it is how I feel. Some days I am not as sensistive even though I get affected, and other days only the slightest thing gives me an asthma attack. Problably it is because some days I get more exposed to more of the things that make me sick than other days. How severe asthma I got. And maybe that is just the way this illness works. And maybe a combination of the both? I think I should ask my doctor about that…
Anyway, I always try to avoid things that make me sick. The sad thing is that I have to avoid some people too. If I see a group of people standing together having a nice time and they are smoking, I have to avoid going there to talk to them. I get sick from the smoke. Also I have to avoid entering doors where people stand smoking in front of the door of the same reason. If it is possible it is better for me to find another way in.
Yesterday when I walked through there and got to the lunch room I got an asthma attack, and had to use Ventoline. A co-worker saw me coughing and said – It’s food here in the kitchen, suggesting my coughing should spread a cold or such. I assured him it was asthma and took my Ventoline. The cough and wining breathing stopped.
A friend later on walked by and I got an asthma attack from his aftershave, and the rest of the day I had problems with my asthma all the day driving. People came in to the bus after smoking, wearing parfume a.s. All day I had problems and had to take medicine several times.
Today I am tired.
I always get tired after a bad asthma day.
