Sick make sick – by Annelie Molin


A little something to think about.

Are you one of those who “on kind of spite” go to work, take public communication aso even if you are so sick you should really stay in bed?

Have you ever thought of who you may infect with your nasty bug?

Like in my case the day before yesterday. I got asthma – an illness of the lungs – and I drive the bus. In steps a woman so sick she sounded like me having a real bad respiratory day staying home from work. And I do not infect anyone having asthma. She is nice this lady, I usually talk with her, and I was told she got a bad bronchitis that is a bad state in the lower air ways – actually forstate to pneumonia. And I got mad. Here we are a lot of people taking the bus, and in my case I got lung problems even not having a cold. And when I get a cold I because of the asthma get problems worse than others having the same cold. All with asthma got this problem, even those with other kinds of lung illnesses, and people take no regard what so ever to think about others they may infect.

It is rather egoistic.

I have been on sick leave for two weeks due to asthma with bad sounds from the lungs and was very happy to be able to go back to work. I have been working for a week, but after she entered the bus in that state I am about to get sick again, and now with a bad cold, breathing difficulties, and coughing. In hope to be able to stay at work avoiding sick leave I now have to use tremendous a lot of medication.

Please, think of others. If you are sick and infectious stay home.

People with lung illnesses do not need your bug. If you get sick and feel bad, know that a person with a lung illness get it double bad than yourself when getting what bug you get.

Have a nice day.

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.

  1. Let me know if you find any good ones. I’m about to buy one from here
    I like that they come in colours too. The ones in Australia are plain and don’t work as well. I wish perfume was banned from public places. I too hide mine under a scarf. When I go to the shops people don’t notice so much.


    • Yes, there is a site

      But it is in Norwegian. It is run by the Norwegian Asthma and Allergy Association. I do not know if it works for mcs’s.

      Translated product info:
      Respro ® Allergy Mask ™ (Poll Mask) is made ​​for people who struggle with hypersensitivity to pollen, dust and other airborne particles or contamination. The mask is made of soft and pliable textile materials also used in breathing masks in the military, where efficient filtration and high wearing comfort are important features.

      There are a cole filter for chems too:
      Size large:

      Translation product info:
      Product number 20010
      2 pieces particulate and chemical filter to Respro pollen mask.
      New mask comes with one filter, a new particle filter ordered when needed.

      Chemical and particle filter: A charcoal filter also filters out pollutants in gaseous form. Nitric oxide, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, low-level ozone and hydrocarbon chemicals picked up all of this filter.

      This filter has a particularly hypoallergenic layer on the inside which ensures that the collected material does not come into contact with the skin. Filter life varies depending on usage, but based on one hour of use per day the filter will last for about a month. Discoloration and breathing resistance are indications that the filter should be replaced.

      The filters are available in sizes L and M, where M fits meshes M and S.

      But I will have to wait buying it. It is expensive. All in all I will have to pay over 2000 Norwegian krona for the masks I need. I need a cold air warming mask and a protective mask with chemical particle filter.


  2. I wear a mask, so I know that I am respecting others by not letting them catch my bugs. The funny thing is, I have not caught a cold or flu in two years. Maybe because I wear a mask overtime I go out. Every. Single, Time. Perfumes make me sick, so I have to.

    Thank you for sharing. I’m now linking to your blog! :)

    Have a happy day today.

    • Yes, I also get sick from perfumes and other stuff, and think of getting a mask myself. I am going to use it to give my lungs relief in periods to relax the situation. I can not use it at work since I got customer contact and must be able to talk to people, but I can use it at times I am alone. It easies the pressure on my health getting time off from inhaling all the bad chemicals around. I realised that when I had a bad day this summer and put on a protective facemask for industrial use I got and felt better after a while. But I need to find a lighter version, the industrial mask is a bit too much. I want one I can hide under a scarf.
