    i'm reading so many of y'alls stories about living with chronic illness as a kid, and wow, my heart goes out to you all. it's so dang hard, and so so scary. i hope your quality of life has improved since then, i hope everything from taking medicine to taking time outside has found to be helpful. chronic illness is rough, and holy crap are y'all amazing for continuing on despite it all.

    So I am a wierd kid first of all when I was about 10 months old we found out I had a very bad infection that had spread a lot in my lungs idk how I’m alive but I’m also always kind of struggling to breath a little because I have a bicuspid aortic valve and I’m gonna explain it cuz I’m lazy which directly effects my blood flow and that’s means it effects my breathing

But I remember my eczema was so bad, I have vivid memories of having my feet in a bucket of salt water screaming at the pain and my parents giving me a jaw breaker to help and me breaking it in half :,) it slowly disappeared, I get it occasionally but thankfully never nearly that bad. I don’t have asthma, or any side effects, very fortunate, but I just remember how horrendous my feet eczema was lmao My heart goes out to you all ✨

    I had all that happen to me as a kid too just at later stages, eczema not as a baby but as a kid and that didnt get properly treated until I was 17, I also had/have asthma and had pneumonia in elementary school and my inhalers never worked because I found out later I also had PVCFM which is a secondary breathing issue that can be exacerbated by certain inhalers.

  • LuckyLiam
    LuckyLiam5 days ago

    I remember my mom telling me this story of when she and my dad came back from going out somewhere and when they came back they noticed my face was turning blue and I was having difficulty breathing. My mom ran to my baby sitter and asked her why she wasn't doing anything to help, and her response was, AND I QUOTE. "I didn't want to disrupt his playtime." My parents fired her, rushed me to the hospital, and it was there that the doctors said I had been diagnosed with Asthma. My lung basically collapsed. Later that evening my mom got a call from my babysitter about her being paid, and my mom, being the TOTAL SAVAGE she is, said to her. "I'll tack that payment onto the $20,000 hospital bill." and hung up. My asthma is under control now, but growing up, SHEEEEEEESH. It was rough to say the least.
