A new cafe – I got sad – by Annelie Molin

1 Comment

I work in a very small community. This week a new small cafe opened. It looked so very homely and cozy. They sell things like curtains, pillows, lamps and such for the home, and also have tables and serving coffee and cakes. Lovely. :) I so liked to go there today. Entered the door and it was as cozy inside as it looked in the window.


But in the same moment I came in the room I felt my lungs protest. My heart sunk. Not again! It is such a nice place, I thought to myself. :'(

I wanted cake so I tried to endure and took medicine. But it got worse.

When the lady had helped the other customer I kindly asked her if there where scented candles on the tables? And explained I got asthma and is sensitive. She said, – No I think it is normal candles. Then I asked even more nicer, – Then maybe it is something you use to clean with? She said, We use Pine soap. – That is normally not the worst kind, I replied. We had to conclude with that maybe it was a customer who had been there before who had wore perfume.

I had planned to have a coffee and cake in the cafe, but had to leave with the cake in a bag.

A pity. And I got sad. I will try another time to see if it goes better. If not it is something in the cafe that irritates the lungs. I hope not.

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. I so feel your pain. I think it’s very important to remind those who have small children with asthma to stop wearing scented products. Small kids do not know how to communicate thier struggle after encountering scented lotions/perfumes on thier parents. Just keep voicing our health issues with scents and one day they will be reconized as being as harmfull as second hand smoke.
