Famous Asthma Quotes

When you’re having an asthma attack, you don’t have any breath. When you don’t have any breath, it’s hard to speak. You’re limited by the amount of air you can spend from your lungs. That’s not much, something between three to six words. It gives the word a meaning. You’re searching through the piles of words in your head, picking the most important ones. And they have a cost. It’s not like the healthy people that take out every word that has accumulated in their head like garbage. When someone, while having an asthma attack, says I love you or I really love you, there’s a difference. A word difference. And a word is a lot, because that word could have been sit, Ventolin or even ambulance. Etgar Keret

How on earth can cow’s milk be considered an essential part of our diet when its purpose is to feed calves until they are old enough to be weaned? How does it make any sense at all that people are supposed to have it? Just because we have been doing it for centuries does not mean it is rational or good for us it just means it was an available food source at some point, and has since become an acceptable part of the human diet. But essential? Not on your life. Good for you? No way. Talk about putting diesel fuel in a car that requires petrol. At least both diesel and petrol operate similar types of vehicles. liberty forrest

I know from my constituency what is going on. Doctors that are told, begged, by mothers, Please don’t write down that my child as asthma.
