I am a 64yr old white female. Diagnosed with moderate-severe emphysema 2 yrs ago. I was quite surprised because I had given up smoking 23yrs previously. I was also an avid tennis player playing 3-4x's a week and race walking on the offf days.
I had no symptoms of shortness of breath. I was becoming more fatigued at the end of the match but marked it up to age and...
I'm looking for a job or disability-whichever I qualify for the most. Whenever I'm able to work, I want to get certified for tattooing and piercing. I'm a long-time Bulimic, but physically, I'm reasonably healthy. My biggest problems are prediabetes and a recent lung cancer scare that was just my COPD (both forms of it) getting worse, lung damage from too much smoking and bronchitis that won't...

The purpose of my blog is purely educational. My mother was not in good health for years - it all started when she was diagnosed with Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) - cause unknown (or idiopathic - as the docs say). There were many occasions when I had to spend hours trying to get information on things the doctors assumed I knew about.

Hi, I'm Ron, and I'm an ME/CFS survivor (so far anyway), 24 years and counting. I am, at the time of writing, pretty much housebound. This restricts me to mostly sedentary pastimes - reading, blogging, occasionally sloping off to the pub, and cooking when I can, which isn't as often as I'd like. I do, though, make my own bread by hand, at least once a week - good food and physio in one...
