I was diagnosed with COPD in 2008, although I have had symptoms of the disease for 13 years. I also have Crohns Disease, A “Stiff Heart” Pulmonary Hypertension, Glaucoma, Cataracts and failing vision, C4 thru C7 disk damage in my neck causing me to have pain, loss of strength and numbness in my arms, Glaucoma and had had a Total Colectomy after 27 surgeries. I am on LTOT, but my O2 Sats are still low. I have no energy and have to use a wheelchair for going distances. I am currently on SSDI. but I hope to find a work @ home job. My dad died from COPD, one cousin has had a lung transplant and she died recently 5 years after her transplant, and another died of CF and Emphysema. My Aunt also died from COPD.
I am married 30 years to a wonderful woman, I have two fantastic young adult children.
I tend to get riled up by stupidity and cannot stand dealing with idiots. I have very strong opinions about various things.
That is why I’m starting this Blog.
