I have been so stressed out the last few months due to the Lung CT I had 3 months ago.
I smoked for many years but quit almost 11 years ago. Smoking always has consequences and I knew this at the time.
It seems I destroyed part of my lungs and have 48% usage of them. The part I destroyed is the alveoli which is the part that mixes the blood and oxygen.
This explains the shortness of breath I have been having and it is caused by Emphysema once you destroy part of your lungs you never get that back again. I rarely cough from this which is a good thing. My dad had this but had a horrible cough to go with it.
On Friday I did the 25 minutes worth of breathing test at the pulmonologist office and found out I have Asthma.
Now I am armed with an Asthma medication and two inhalers that means I am ready to deal with this.
I love spending time outdoors whether it’s working in the yard or walking on trails with nature all around and taking pictures of its beauty. I enjoy bike riding and playing fetch with Miss Daisy I will not give these up because they are all very important to me.
I recently have found a love for making stuff with concrete but now I will wear a mask I should have been doing this before.
Life is full of obstacles that try to stop us from doing the things we enjoy. Never give up on the things that you love doing just make adjustments to fit your new lifestyle.
Nothing can stop you from living life other than yourself.
