Sofa and asthma..

Leave a comment

I just remembered something I experienced last year. Looking at the headline you might think this is about being a sofa potato not getting enough exercise to get better in asthma? Well, no. This is about when I bought my new sofa in 2010. I waited for a long time for my new sofa to arrive. Expectations where high and when it finally arrived it was just as nice and good-looking as in the shop. Time to put it together.

Started to unpack it. Doors and windows was opened  since it was summer.

When trying to sit in it in later on, I was surprised I got an asthma attack. Air from inside the sofa was pressed out from my weight. I could hear the air being pressed out. I felt my lungs take the grip on my possibility to breathe.

I have read about such that one can get asthma troubles from new furnitures, but never experienced it myself before.

Well, luckily it was only a passing thing. I have used it for a long time now, so probably it was only the gasses let out when unpacking it. After have been using it for a year I do not experience any problems.

But it is kind of scary that you can get breathing troubles from a sofa. As I said, I have read about it at but never thought I would experience it myself.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
