Jeg er en dame på 57 år. For 6 år siden fikk jeg diagnose kraftig Astma og KOLS. Første året gikk jeg ut og inn på lungepoliklinikken på Ullevål sykehus. Fra og være en arbeidende person ble jeg plutselig en person som ikke klarte noe. Lukter som parfyme, ol. ble jeg veldig tett av. Jeg ble så ille at vi ble rådet av lunge legen om å flytte ut av Oslo. Det hadde vi ikke lyst til, men etter at jeg var på sykehuset og ble så tett at jeg våknet på intensiven etter å ha ligget i respirator forsto vi at jeg måtte gjøre noe. Vi flyttet ut av Oslo til Lena på Toten. Jeg kan ikke gå i butikken eller gjøre noe for alle mensker bruker en eller annen form for lukt. Har vært en del på Granheim lunge rehab. Der har det vært folk med lukter og jeg har måttet få Theodur inntrevenøst med en gang for å ha åpning. Skriver dette for at NAAF skal se at det er viktig å jobbe mot alle former for parfyme, ol. Det er en folkerett for oss som er syke at vi kan gå på sykehus, skoler og offentlige kontorer. Livet er vanskelig nok som det er med en lunge sygdom. Hele livet er gjort om. Har fått innvilget støtte av nav til bruk av bil da det er eneste fremkomstmidlet jeg kan ta. Håper at NAAF kan jobbe for luktfritt i det offentlige rom.

How it is to live with a lung disorder

by Torill Nielsen on Sunday, September 4, 2011 at 2:08pm

I am a lady of 57 years. For 6 years ago I was diagnosed severe asthma and COPD. The first year I went in and out of the pulmonary clinic at Ullevål hospital. From being a working person, I was suddenly a person who did not manage anything. Smells like perfume, etc.. I  got very sick, declined lung function, and a tight chest. I was so bad that we were advised by the lung doctor to move out of Oslo. That we did not want to, but after that I was in the hospital and was so dense that I woke up in intensive care after having been on a respirator we realized that I had to do something. We moved out of Oslo to Lena in Toten. I can not go to the store or do something because of all people who use some sort of scent. I have been to Granheim pulmonary rehab. There been people aslo used scents and I had to get Theodur intravenous immediately to enable me breathing. Print this that NAAF will see that it is important to work against all forms of perfume, etc.. It is a human right for us who are sick that we can go to hospitals, schools and government offices. Life is hard ENOUGH as it is with a lung disease. All of ones life is made turned upside down and diffrent. I have been granted the support of NAV, Norwegian Social Security Dep, to the use of a car as it is the only kind of transportation I can take. I hope that NAAF can work for odor-free in the public domain.

Kind Regards
Torill Nielsen

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.

One thought on “COPD, Asthma vs. perfume – By Torill Nielsen

  1. Cigarette smoking has been strongly linked to health conditions like heart disease and lung cancer. Other than these two dreaded disease, heavy smoking may also cause chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This condition causes inflammation and damages the small airways of the lung tissue and may cause breathing difficulties. COPD is usually a combination of two similar conditions: chronic bronchitis and chronic emphysema. Because cigarette smoking is the major cause of these two conditions, they often occur together in the same person. COPD damage is progressive and permanent and has become one of the fastest-growing health problems. It has become the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and is responsible for more than 96,000 deaths annually. Because of these health conditions the need to quit smoking has become more important than ever. Understanding COPD is essential in encouraging smokers to quit this dreaded and potentially fatal habit.,
