Health Update

Hi everyone ….

Most of you would have known I had a visit with the Dr in regards to the CT Scans I had done last last week. Well the news is good and bad. The good news is, it’s not Cancer. Something I was very worried about. I have been a smoker for the last 25 years or so. At the moment I am a heavy smoker and this is most likely not helping. I have been told by my Dr to give it up. That is not going to be easy for me at this stage, but I am going to give it my best shot.

I was a bit of a mess at the Dr’s. Nothing has changed … I need to go and see a chest and Lung specialist now. So this is ongoing. No meds either. SO I have to put up with the headaches, aches, fever and cough etc etc. She named what she thinks I might have (or rather, what the people who did the CT scan say I have). I can’t remember exactly what it was called, but it is a disease. It had four very medical names, one being Bronc(something) and another starting with S. The whole thing ended with the word disease. Apparently it’s crystallization of nodes in the lungs. I have tried to google it and the only thing I can come up with is Sarcoidosis. But that is not what she called it. I should ring again tomorrow and find out for sure … I just wasn’t thinking straight when I was there. The most upsetting thing for me is … this isn’t fact … this is all guessing still for now and my illness is ongoing. I’m sorta getting sick and tired of being sick, you know? I even lost my job over this illness 2 weeks ago.

Thank you so much to everyone who has given me support and well wishes. You have no idea how much it helps to know that people who even only know me online, care so much to show that.
