Fresh air does not smell of fragrance

Frisk luft lukter ikke av parfyme.

Folk ser astma som triviell og overser risikoen for død – People see asthma as trivial and overlooking the potential it has to kill

Folk ser astma som triviell og overser risikoen for død

“De to Lungelegene fra Imperial College og Royal Brompton Hospital i London skriver i tidsskriftet Archives of Disease in Childhood, hvor de to legene bekrefter at astma kan være en dødelig tilstand som en gang ikke ble godt nok diagnostisert. De hevder har pendelen nå svingt for langt den andre veien -. Med så mange diagnoser som blir stilt i dag resulterer i at noen mennesker ser astma som en triviell sak, og overser potensialet den har til å drepe ”

Dette er noe jeg har ment i mange år, folk har en innstiling til astma som om det er noen lett snue eller hoste, de skjønner ikke at det er en alvorlig lungesjukdom som ikke er å kimse av. Man skal ta det seriøst og man skal både respekt for og vise hensyn til dem som har asthma.

People see asthma as trivial and overlooking the potential it has to kill

“Writing in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood, the two respiratory doctors from Imperial College and the Royal Brompton Hospital in London acknowledge that asthma can be a fatal condition that was once not being diagnosed enough.

They argue the pendulum has now swung too far the other way – with over-diagnosis resulting in some people seeing asthma as a trivial matter and overlooking the potential it has to kill.”

This is something I have meant in many years, people have a setting to asthma as there are some slight cold or cough, they do not realize that asthma is a serious lung disease that is not to underestimate the seriousness of. One should take it seriously and you should show respect and care to those who have asthma.

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. Hi

    I read the same article in Australia. It’s possible that the doctors are not looking hard enough at what is the actual cause of the asthmatic symptoms. This would be helpful if they could do that. I have been told I may have CIRS and I am living in a water damaged building so my symptoms that only get awful during wet weather are possibly not MCS at all. Not that I was ever diagnosed with MCS cause, as a disease with a disease code, it doesn’t exist in Australia.

    Be well my friend. (hugs)


    • Asthma can have many causes and a person having asthma can be triggered by both weather, weather changes, swift temperature changes, severe psychological stress, in addition to fragrance, tobacco smoke, incense, and all the other knows causes. So damp weather giving breathing issues can be asthma.

      Asthma can also be cardiac asthma and triggered by heart disease, the common asthma: bronchial asthma is what is commonly known as asthma, and is a disease of the lungs.

      It is true doctors sometimes maybe overlook the causes that triggers asthma, I have heard many talk about how doctors say this and that can not cause asthma, even fragrance, but this I know is wrong since I get sick from fragrance my self and I have asthma to such, with a specialist doctors note to prove it. I think there are doctors who need to update themselves. Not to say these in particular need to.

      I think that sometimes people are wrongly diagnosed, at the same time as many also do not get the proper diagnose, and since asthma has become so common amongst people that people do not understand the gravity of the disease. I believe that both doctors and the asthma and allergy associations are to blame for this, in their aim to down size the issue to ease out the look on asthma they have actually made people believe it is not worse than a cold “so taka a pill” it is the asthmatic persons responsibility to care for their own health and everyone else can go on as usual not caring.

      Am I negative? No just realistic looking from a point of view where I have noted that many people act like that when confronting allergic and asthmatic people.
