If people laugh, it’s likely that they do not understand how your inhaler works. You might explain that your inhaler is doing the very important job of delivering medicine to your lungs. It’s an incredible device! Perhaps the more you explain about the importance of your inhaler, the less likely people will be to misunderstand or make fun.
If people laugh even after you’ve explained what your inhaler does, do your best to ignore them. Remember, you are acting responsibly by taking care of your lungs to stay healthy. That’s nothing to feel embarrassed about.
