As asked by Physicians when I’m in the hospital and ranked in order of dislike.
( I’m sure my fellow lungers can relate)
#1) What triggered your asthma attack this time?
#2) Why does your asthma get so bad?
#3) Do you think anxiety makes your asthma worse?
#4) Do you know how to check your peak flows ?
#5) What can we do to keep you out of the hospital?
#6) Have you ever been intubated for your asthma?
#7) Why did you wait so long to come in for treatment?
And this is how I usually answer them.
#1) I don’t know.
#2) I have bad asthma.
#3) Suffocating to death tends to make me a little anxious .
#4) I know more about pulmonary functions then you can ever hope to know.
#5) How about taking care of me when I’m NOT sick.
#6) I hold the worlds record.
#7) Because I hate answering stupid questions like these.
Do you detect a little sarcasm?
