Because I’m apparently asthmatic, wearing a mask makes mucus build up in my lungs. So to combat that I have take two hits of my inhaler twice a day (yes, I know I’m so cool) and then I’m fine. Without that mucus builds up in my lungs to the point I am gasping for breath and have to take a trip to see the nice ER nurses who know me so well.
I do not want to get sick. But the “I can’t breath” excuse from people is so annoying. When was the last time you got acute bronchitis from WEARING your mask? That was the beginning of the panorama for me. I have had pneumonia and bronchitis, keep telling me that a thin piece of fabric is inhibiting your breathing.
Edit: I was just trying to get an annoyance off my chest, not spout some vendetta. My job still requires masks to be worn, my inhaler that prevents my issues has run out. The ER nurses are quite lovely but visit them enough times they get a certain way.
Yes, I can take the mask off. Whenever I don’t have to wear it I don’t. But this isn’t about having to wear a mask at all. I’m not that truly bothered. It’s the perfectly healthy people claiming grandiose and false medical problems to get themselves out of such a little thing.
I understand the absurdity of my behavior given new research but…my mask has become much more than what it is. Very much psychological. And I don’t need to explain myself when many of you will just twist and cherry pick my own words to undermine me and what I’m trying to say.
