Asthma/allergy humor

I love googling jokes and funny quotes about various subjects, and asthma is no exception! 

Besides, they say that each time you find humor in a difficult situation, you win. I found that during harder times it helped me cope. Would you join me?

Just don't forget your inhaler in case you laugh too hard😉

    Haha! Ooh love the topic Wheezy Me! I agree that good humor does help me through tough times. (Ps if you hit "insert into post the image will pop up bigger in your post).

    This one makes me laugh because cats have always seemed to gravitate toward my dad and I (but we are both allergic and now I won't go anywhere near them) but Ill never forget how even shy cats would run up straight to us and the owner would be like, wow usually theyre shy and dont go by people)

    Great topic, Wheezy Me!

    Oh, I love it! Sometimes ya gotta laugh or cry, and I always prefer laughing!

    Saw this on a tee shirt once …

    Asthma isn't contagious …

    but my smile is!

    Oh, and Shea, hopefully you won't ever be stuck in a room with a cat and no immediate escape route, but in case you are … a tip from a cat-owner: 

    Cats are uneasy with direct eye contact, so they pick out who is "safest" in a room by checking to see which person ISN'T looking at them. It just so happens that people who don't like cats also don't LOOK at cats. It's the ultimate in mis-communication!

    If you want a cat to stay far-far-far away from you, just stare at them, straight in the eye.

    This is a great topic Wheezy Me! Thanks for starting it. 

    Shea, I am not much of a cat person, prefer dogs, but that is very true and funny.

    I agree, you need to find humor in every situation. That is the only way we get through our days on occasion.

    Cynthia,  That's very interesting!  My dad loved dogs but didn't like cats and they would always gravitate to him.  Makes sense why now!

  • Shea

    Yaaayyy cats arent trying to kill us!!! Haha makes so much sense– definitely the ultimate miscommunication

    So true!

    Some people, however, should not be told that… if they bother me, I give a hearty cough, and off they go!

  • Shea

    Haha– I just came across this one– this is so me! (Although Monitor lizards are too big for me– I like these little desert lizards called uromastyx that are smaller and are vegetarians).

  • Wheezy Me

    You're welcome!

    Shea- you look good and so does your pet lizard! Enjoy it! And thanks for the cartoon😃

    LOVE the way you've found asthma's silver lining! 

    Shea, I your lizards! They look like baby dinos!

  • Shea

    Yeah— lizards are one of the few animals I can safely hold so it calms me actually. It makes me feel safe and connected. Plus these lizards are not made for this area so I keep their habitat safe and they can have visits to the outside but need their soecial requirements–so I feel in lime comoany around them. They are sweet and low-maintenence if you meet their basic requirements. And they have a practical aversion of the same animals I have developed a practical aversion of due to my allergies: cats, dogs, and birds…. So I feel we are meant to be.

    But I totally get others being uncimfortable holding them.. I started off by becoming familiar with them visiting reptile stores and holding ones that are tame and dont jump around and just bit by bit became comfortable.

    Plus I see breeding them as a possibility of doing something I love to help them and help myself and others who might be allergic to other sorts of animals. But I only have an adult male and my female uromastyx is a baby still so not ready to breed them until she fully matures and then we will see.

    Lizards I can take. Rats or mice? Nope! My DD can handle lizards, snakes, even bears chasing her … but spiders? This is her reaction to spiders …

    My dad has just finished his latest round of prednisone, and my step mom is SO grateful. I thought about my dad when I saw this …

  • Wheezy Me

    Cynthia, that is funny!😃 I guess the spider couldn't escape this one… Make sure your DD doesn't take that pic seriously!

    And I love tigger too! All characters from Winnie the Pooh are cute and nice to encounter. Glad your Dad is off steroids!

  • Shea

    BAHAHAHAHA!  I needed this today. I had a Methacholine challenge today, so breathing and blinking is all I’ve done.

    This is the BEST thread-when you're having one of those days and need a laugh-

    Absolutely!

  • K8sMom2002

    I love it! Thanks for tickling my funny bone! As for capes …

    Here's a lovely teal-colored cape for Asthma and Allergy Awareness colors! Lovingly constructed out of the finest damask! (Or whatever a fancy cloth is!)

  • Shea

    Yesss– new sign: "No cigar-smoking dogs in mall or within 15 feet of entry, please". (Then people will bring vaping dogs– always pushing the limits).

    Love the cape— I'd so buy one! (With matching asthma mask!)

    I realize I do use a little "shopping therapy" to get me out and cheer me up– although it hasnt been going AS well since I have asthma/allergies… I find ways, lol… Like masks… And capes!
