I think it is more because of the whole zero drug tolerance that public schools have.

So I’ve broken the rules by bringing panadol, have I?

I’m also asthmatic, and my school said to me “Grow up” when I said that. So you’re not alone!  

Asthma is very childish, you’re almost 15, and you still have Asthma. I think it’s time cut it off, you’re going to become an adult soon, and you can’t be all obsessed wit this Ashma thing in the real world.

I wish I were one of the kids who grew out of it, but I’m already past the age of that reasonably happening. I suppose I’m stuck in detention… For life.

No I didnt mean to thank that.

I didn’t realize that people could grow out of it.

Oh, yeah! Some kids actually do grow out of asthma, but that’s very rare. I’m always happy for any that do.

Actually, I’m one of those people. I had pretty severe asthma from birth until about age six. I was in and out of doctors’ offices all the time. I was eleven years old the last time I saw a doctor for asthma-related causes. I don’t think I’ve even owned an inhaler in more than ten years. I’m less than two months out from turning twenty-five. 

It’s likely that my asthma will return if I’m an old man, but I’ll worry about that then.

Can smoking cause asthma or bring it back?

I’m glad your asthma went away, @Necko !! I hope you don’t have to worry about it again for a long time.

And, yes, smoking can cause asthma. Even secondhand smoke. That’s why my brother and I have it. We were forced to live with people who smoked around us almost 24/7. I got the worst of it because I was the oldest, unfortunately. 

I’m not sure about smoke bringing it back if you’ve stopped having symptoms… Since smoking causes breathing problems anyway, I assume it would cause symptoms to re-appear eventually, though some people get lucky with that kind of thing.

I used to have quite bad asthma, and was once hospitalised after an attack when I was about 28 (12 years ago).

I haven’t used an inhaler in years; I happened to get a doctor who was interested in more than treating the symptoms. He prescribed me a brown inhaler and a spacer, and I had to use them a couple of times a day. It really worked and I’ve been fine ever since. Previously I’d just been given blue inhalers. Obviously this isn’t medical advice but I thought I’d mention it anyway.

Good to know, actually, since I’ll have to go in to get my annual checkup soon! I’m currently on albuterol mostly as a preventative measure, and thankfully I don’t have to use it nearly as often as I did in middle school. A good doctor goes a long way!

The stories of schools conducting themselves in this manner in regard to potential life-threatening illnesses and the medication for them make the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Your parents should have been down there raising hell. I know I would have been – I’ve raised hell with my kids’ schools since…well, since my kids started school…

Do you consider yourself anti-natalist or natalist?

Anti-natalist, I guess.  This planet is way overpopulated already.  We don’t need to bring more life into it to strain our natural resources and warm our planet further.

I agree. I think the entire planet needs to educate their future children about the importance of being ready to have a child. It is a danger to the population and the children if people with no way of providing are having 5 or 6 kids.

I think this is a more complicated question, with different geographical areas and economic systems requiring different approaches.

Easy as it is to talk of over-population, the problem in many of the advanced democracies and economies is a problem of falling birthrates creating an imbalance between tax paying working adults and the economically unactive or underactive members of society. It is difficult to give your older and younger citizens the advantages you would like to see them have with a shrinking group of tax payers meeting the bills. Many of the countries in which there is population growth on almost unsustainable levels are among the poorest parts of the world, and to start think that population control is an answer you start wandering very close to eugenics.

The real question facing us going forward, with more and more jobs being capable of being mechanised, is what to do with populations suffering from vanishing employment opportunities.

That’s what I think, anyway.

We could transition to post-scarcity, if it gets to the point where no one is able to get a job.

I say more people in places with negative population growth should adopt from places with higher population growth.
