mmm authority figures in school actually used to punish me for my asthma a lot… I would get snapped at a lot for coughing cause they thought I was faking it to get out of things, or trying to be disruptive on purpose.
turns out, when you get bad grades, anything you do can be used as justification to harm you!!! because anything you do that isn’t schoolwork (bathing, sleeping, having asthma attacks, going to the grocery store, visiting yer dad) is evidence that you’re bad at school on purpose!!!!!
I was too scared to get a rescue inhaler until I was TWENTY FOUR, because I was terrified the doctor would tell me I didn’t need one and I should stop being lazy
