My body just doesn't want to give me a break.
I have been struggling with breathing issues, which over the last 6 months have gotten worse.
I can't catch my breath if I do anything physical, even sometimes just doing the laundry is really hard.
The last time I played golf with a friend, I was gasping for air.
My primary doctor said I had asthma, then she said it's not asthma. She had my heart checked, and that was okay.
I haven't been able to do yoga, and kept having to leave because of not being able to breathe.
Last Monday night, I had to go to the ER after I left yoga because I couldn't catch my breath.
What they found on my chest x ray is that I have emphysema and fibrotic changes in the lungs.
So on Monday I will be going into see a lung doctor.
I have never smoked.
Of course, when I read about these lung problems on Google, I get even more upset.
It's been heavy week. My emotions are all over the place. I know I have no choice but to accept this, but it is scary none the less.
I have made it through many health problems. I know I will live with this one. But in the meantime, all I want to do is cry.
With Much Love,
On Day 1,119,
