Hi my name is Marti, Im 22 years old. ive had lung issues for about 4 years beginning in 2010 when my lungs collapsed without warning and i needed surgery. From then my road to recovery has never been straight forward. At first i was back to my regular self but over the last year my breathing got worse and i was spells were my lips, toes and fingers would go blue and i would faint.
Im a keen dancer and gymnast as well as being at uni full time and running my own charity so i was shocked when yesterday i was diagnosed with Small airways lung disease a type of COPD. im a bit shell shocked at the moment but my friends have been very supportive
