Been a rough few years. I have end stage IPF I've passed my prognosis estimate by two years and I am happy for each day. I can't walk anymore but I have a cool, new to me, old electric wheelchair. ~ Hell on wheels! lol. I. can put a hole in a wall faster than you can blink!
I feel calmer and more centered then I ever have. Strange but good.
Lots of brain fog lately so I've started keeping lots of notes. Please don't hesitate to ask if you don't receive something I've promised you.
If you smoke STOP now! I've been told my lungs look like smokers lungs but I never smoked.
If you are overweight but otherwise healthy, or just overweight according to BMI charts PLEASE lose weight NOW. You hopefully CAN do it now.
Five years ago I was "healthy but fat" Now I am 50 lbs heavier and NOT eligible for a transplant because my BMI is too high and I've acquired lots more autoimmune diseases. If, God forbid, you ever need a transplant you won't get one if you are otherwise healthy but overweight. Don't wait until it might be too late to lose because of the meds you are taking.
