Who placed this ten ton weight on my chest? and where would you hide if you were an inhaler?

My chest is very very tight and breathing is a little tricky tonight. Normally my inhaler is in my bag but typically, the day i really need it, i can't find it.

Is there anything i can do to help my breathing if i can't find it? I definatly need something and quite soon

coat pocket



if no luck then as rasputin says get to a and e

you do not want to be hospitalised with wards full of SF victims when a quick slurp on a nebuliser and a few days of steroids will do th trick, yes?

in your car? or handbag? coat pocket? or in a bathroom cupboard?

If you are alone and someone else cannot find it for you, forget then hunt and go to A&E before it gets worse - trying to last out the night is a mug's game (and much too risky)

no i CAN breathe, its just a bit tricky. Laboured rather than I can't breathe.

Its not an emergancy but i do need my inhalor before i go to bed!

LOL at x-port with StinkyFart - inhalers are clearly consistent in their hiding places grin

panic over, its found and taken. Feel like i will need it more in the night (in a heading for a chest infection kind of way rather than a shit i can't breathe way) but i HAVE it!

Must put it back where it lives now!!

Thank you very much
