Murphey’s Law

Why do I always have asthma trouble on days I’ve forgotten my inhaler at home?

It’s in my martial arts bag because I forgot to switch it back to my work bag.

Can’t wait till I can get another new inhaler and start keeping one in each bag like I used to.

    Because confirmation bias means you don’t remember the times when you had asthma trouble and could easily counteract it because of having your inhaler with you :p

    Seriously though, that sucks. Hope you can get an extra one so you don’t have to remember to switch it around.

      Almost certainly. Add in the fact that people tend to remember negative experiences more than positive ones, and there you go. πŸ˜›

      What I normally do, since I usually have pretty good asthma control and so don’t use my inhalers all that often, is get a rescue puffer every month for about the first 3-4 months of the year and just put them in different places. Then in December, I get rid of all the old ones because they tend to expire after about a year or so. Because I have a memory like a sieve and will forget my inhaler at some point and it never hurts to have a spare.

      At bad times of the year, I get an extra and carry it with me, so I can medicate faster. Not necessary, but it’s easier than trying to remember to let it re-pressurize for 60 seconds between puffs.

      This year, I remembered to do the purge, but I forgot to restock. Whoops.
