One of my neighbors showed up today, not on my doorstep for a glass of wine, no. She had ended up in the mental hospital where I work sometimes, not on my yard, so I did not know until today, here is the story;
She is in the age of 35 diagnosed of "silent asthma"
Before they knew this she was diagnosed as a total lunatic an put in the worst yards possible in the mental hospital.
this happened within a month; from being highly functioning single mother to a babbling lunatic.
What happens if you dont get enough O2 you actually go mad; -she fainted over and over again, said she was dying (she was) and the staff thought she was, yes; "mad", over reacting etc.
Luckily she has a son with the same diagnosis; hence managed to recognize the symptoms; and in a bright moment she managed to call her family and made them bring some asthma medication, they actually smuggled it in.. She then made it to a proper (somatic) doctor; well, proper enough to make a diagnosis, and to put her on heavy duty asthma medication. Within ten days she is now "normal" again (their terms)
So how is it possible to get asthma in the age of 30+. Out of the blue?
I asked her; you didnt take the swine flu vaccine a month or two ago, as I know my own brother got asthma just months after his first flu vaccine..
Yes, she replied; this is the one and only vaccine I have had in 20+ years.
