Thoughtful Tuesday: lung function sucks!

Not sure there is more to add...

Had my annual visit with the allergy/immunology specialist.  My lung function sucks...a little worse than last year.  Tired of the meds, tired of hearing I need to get rid of my dogs (not going to happen).  Tired of having immuno-therapy pushed on me (I had a reaction to it, so not keen on trying it again).

I keep expecting the doctor to tell me it's time for a lung transplant.  My 'normal' function is 30% of normal.  To me, that's what normal is.  I once took prednisone for an extended period of time.  I could breathe so well, I felt like I was 'high', and light-headed, in a very good way.  Those of you who can breathe normally, enjoy it.  You don't know how lucky you are.

To my respiratory impaired friends, I feel your pain, every day of my 47+ years of life.  Hang tough...
