What is Adult-onset asthma?

 Adult-onset asthma is defined simply by its name. Once one has hit the adult stages of life, he/she may experience this type, yet even so, there are certain groups that are more susceptible to it. Some are listed as follows; “women who are having hormonal changes, such as those who are pregnant or who are experiencing menopause; women who take estrogen following menopause for 10 years or longer, people who have just had certain viruses or illnesses, such as cold or flu; people with allergies, especially to cats; people who have GERD, a type of chronic heartburn with reflux; people who are exposed to environmental irritants, such as tobacco smoke, mold, dust, feather beds, or perfume.”

These are the kind of factors that make adult-onset asthma different than the rest because it is one of the types that one can be faced with later in his/her lifetime, rather than as a child. In turn, not all asthma is something that’s inherited from one’s family – and/or one’s medical history – but can instead be encountered based on his/her surrounding environment, health and wellness, and/or what he/she is subject to. Fortunately, adult-onset asthma can be managed if one follows his/her doctor’s plan and keeps up with his/her day-to-day routine. If one doesn’t then his/her symptoms risk the chance of not getting any better.

As a result, adult-onset asthma and occupational asthma have a little bit in common because they both occur in response to something that the person is surrounded by. The only difference is that occupational asthma is centered around work, but in terms of symptoms a lot of the same ones can show up for someone with adult-onset asthma if their environment consists of “cigarette smoke, some chemicals, dust, pollen, and/or mold.” The reason why is because “allergies trigger at least 30% of cases of adult asthma.”

In conclusion, it is important for one who is experiencing asthma as an adult to meet with his/her doctor to receive help in relation to his/her condition and to better observe what the underlying reason might be for him/her to develop it. In doing so, lifestyle changes may need to take place for the individual’s airways to have any chance of getting better. If you are experiencing “wheezing, coughing with or without mucus, shortness of breath, chest tightness or pressure, or colds that seem to linger” then you may want to seek out the help of a medical professional to receive the best care.

THE EFFICACY OF YOUR DRESS SENSE AND APPEARANCES

THE EFFICACY OF YOUR DRESS SENSE AND APPEARANCES

Dressing has always been an integral part of culture and society in every part of the world. Dresses and appearances have to an extent being a means of identifying and recognizing different professions, tribe, and association in relation to their respective countries or race.

Whether you like it or not, the cloth you wear at every point in time tells something about you. It will be right to agree with the saying that opines that, “the way you are dressed, is the way you will be addressed”. By this statement, it is to follow that one should always appear in such ways that represents the expectation of people, in terms of the norms and values of the society, profession, occupation, event etc.

What do people get to know about you from your dress?

As earlier discussed, there are many things that people can deduce or infer from the kind of clothes we wear. Some of these deductions will be elucidated in seriatim:

Neatness and effort:  From the look of the clothes, you put on people tend to have reservations and conclusions about how neat you are or how well you take care of your appearance. It is important for you to know about the advantage and disadvantage of being neat.

Looking good is a characteristic of good opportunities, and of course for you to look good you must be at least neat to a reasonable extent. It also propels the judgment of people concerning how conscious you are about your look, and how much you put in to making yourself better or worse.

Field of work or profession and how good you are at what you do: usually, some specific professions or occasions have their own way of dressing, which serves as an indicator to identifying what they do. Artists, doctors, lawyers, engineers, accountants etc. all have their way of dressing that suits the job they do, and also assists them in actualizing their dreams in light of the profession.

The words your appearance speak about you

If you were walking on the road, and you come across a huge person, wearing an armless shirt and a ripped jean, you obviously will not be thinking that such person is heading to an office or some official engagement. Why? Because what his appearance speaks is not in line with some official setting.

Let us say you cross his path and he says “get out of my way”, you would not be surprised and will not hesitate to leave is way.

However, appearances are not sufficient to generalize to 100% the personality of a person, but it is what speaks about you before you introduce yourself. So, ensure to look who you really are, in other not to confuse people about your personality.
