Big Shiny Robot | How Fiction Helped Me Find Myself
The following is a guest post by Fabienne Payet Let me take you back to my childhood. I was born in ’78 so it might take a while… At age 9 I was diagnosed with asthma, I had a hard time breathing and doing things. And I did not know anyone else who suffered from it, so no one could relate to me; But that changed. I saw The Goonies on television and the lead character, Mikey, had asthma too! How amazing that was to find someone like me. He went on a great adventure, inhaler in hand.
