13 things that will only make sense if you grew up with asthma

It ain’t easy being wheezy.

1. Of all the things you could be bad at, you had to be bad at breathing

The one thing you really need to do. Thanks a lot, body!

2. And portrayals of asthmatics aren’t exactly that forgiving

Does asthma make you a nerd, or do you get asthma because you’re a nerd? Inquiring minds want to know.

3. PE and playground games were actual torture for you

After 30 seconds of running, your lungs were on fire, so you were always ‘on’ in Tip the Can. THANKS, BODY.

6. But your greatest despair? Being given your first inhaler

7. And having to bring it everywhere with you

School tours, teenage discos, granny’s house, everywhere. And the bollocking you’d get if you forgot (or ‘forgot’) it!

8. And having to take a puff in in public

Secondhand smoke = Satan. This is the truth.

13. Any and every experience can be a breathtaking one


Cold weather. Walking through a perfume department. Laughing too much. Asthma is a hell of a ride!

14. And even as an adult, you still have this little buddy with you at all times

A true friend :’)
