As the youngest of several siblings, I was often teased mercilessly by our brothers and siblings. I was naive and oblivious until I reached middle school, making me an straight-forward target. On top of that, I wasn’t the strongest kid physically and I was sick all of the time. You’d suppose that I would appreciate staying beach lake house from school, but not when the reason is being so sick you can barely get out of bed. This would bar me from playing with our friends after school as well. During this time, our pediatrician diagnosed me with asthma and told me to carry a rescue inhaler with me wherever I went. This was a source of frustration for me because I dislike being teased for using an inhaler at school in front of other students. There were caricatures of the nerdy kid with glasses using an inhaler on all sorts of cartoons growing up, and this honestly didn’t help me whatsoever. Nowadays I don’t have to worry about other people looking at me with a funny face just for using our doctor prescribed medication. At beach lake house I have to use great a/c filters to collect as several allergens as possible. I recently updated from MERV 11 filters to MERV 14 filters, and I can honestly say that they are worth every penny regardless of how much they cost. I finally slept through the night without waking up from a stuffy nose, sore through, or wheezy lungs. The difference is night and morning between the 2 weird quality a/c filters.
