Hello. New and wanting to make connections. ๐ŸŒธ

Hello. So pleased to find this site. I was diagnosed with Constrictive Broncholotis about a year ago. A manifestation of having Rheumatoid arthritis. I am looking to connect with other people with lung conditions. I am in my early 40s and feel like I am missing out on life. I get very breathless just walking! I feel exhausted a lot of the time. Needing friends and support. Will be pleased to help support others too. ๐ŸŒน

  • A very warm welcome to you Caspiana. ๐Ÿ˜„

    I hope you enjoy being with us here. We're all managing some lung condition or another & the support  is fantastic. ๐Ÿ‘

    If you read through the previous posts, you'll see that we enjoy sharing our happy & sad times, our family events, our moans & groans, jokes, poems etc. 

    We also give each other advice if possible about our various lung conditions.

    We're a friendly bunch of all ages, sexes & from different countries. 

    We'll be happy to chat to you anytime ๐Ÿ’

  • Hi Jessy. Thanks for the welcome. I look forward to being part of this wonderful community! 

  • Hi Caspania great to meet you and welcome to the site.   As Jessy said we are a very friendly crowd who all help and support each other,  so you  have come to the right place.   There should be info about your condition on this site and if you are in the UK you can ring BLF on 03000 030 555 for advice and help.  

    If you have any questions just jump in and ask and I guarantee there will be others who suffer from your illness.   The site is a bit quiet at weekends but I am sure others will be in soon.

    Oh and 1 thing if you don't lock your posts they can appear (and the replies) in full anywhere on the web.   To do this from a lappy you need to click on 'community only' when you post.   Many don't like replying to unlocked posts! 

    If you want to amend it then click on the v arrow at the bottom,  click edit,  amend then resubmit.   A little padlock will show when it's locked.   If you are using any other device then I don't know how to do it.    x

  • Hello. Thank you very much for the welcome. Especially for the tip. I will look into it right away. xx 

  • You are very welcome Caspiana.   It's up to you whether you do lock your posts,   a few prefer unlocked ones.    I just wanted to make you aware of your options so you can decide for yourself.   x
