Hi everyone, I've just returned from my weekly fit to breath class so I'm fully warmed up now but slightly knackered too. After the session we all sit around to chat and enjoy our well earned tea and biscuits, I enjoyed the company of a lovely 79 year old lady who told me of her consultants prognosis when she was 18 that she wouldn't live beyond 40 and she would not be able to have children. Well she seems to have proved him wrong by still being here at 79 and having children and grandchildren and has probably outlived him as well.
She has been living with pulmonary fibrosis caused by TB since the age of 18 and what really struck me was her determination to never give in.
That's one thing about being part of the heavy breathers club like ourselves we get to meet some wonderful people on our travels, people that we would never have met had we been fit and healthy.
Its not all bad living with lung disease is it healthunlockeders.
