Hi. My auntie who I have had a close mother-daughter type relationship for all my life (I'm 50, she's 80) started showing strong symptoms in late 2021 and was diagnosed last year with Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. She is now housebound on 24hr oxygen therapy with carers coming in and lots of visits from friends.
We are each other's only real family other than my 10yo son who we both adore.
I ve joined here as I'm starting to look for support for myself and my son while also of course supporting my aunt who lives about 1.5 hours away from my son and I.
I look forward to reading through your posts.
Welcome to the forum Daisywendy. Sorry to hear of your dear mother’s diagnosis. She seems to be well supported but it must be difficult for you to see her as she now is.
I’m sure you’ll hear from others too as this is a very kind, caring and supportive place to be. Xxx
