Thank goodness you are being investigated properly now t2d. All those days suffering at home, feeling terrible, not knowing what to do. At least now you are being given some answers to the many questions that were probably plaguing your mind. I do hope they get you onto a good regime of meds that can stabilise you, and make you comfortable. Especially for pain and sleep.

We're all behind you, willing you on. Take it one day at a time xx

I hope things improve quickly for you. I brought into the hospital internet when I had my two week stay. As I already paid for Netflix etc it allowed me to catch up on all the TV series that I wanted to watch but never had the time.

You are in the right place even though you are being poked and prodded. Sorry about the extra dx, too much on top of everything else.

But you are a very strong person. And you will get through.

You are actually a human being with all the feelings and anxieties that that implies. Not an automaton. Don't beat yourself up about being a wimp, you're not. We have seen what you have been through, and know that you are entitled to feeling on the ropes at the moment. Hang in there.

Love and the gentlest of hugs

Time_2_drink , I was thinking how I could possibly try and cheer you up or at least make to smile maybe ?....So then I thought what made me giggle earlier on? Between you and I(don't tell anyone else), I struggled to put on a pair of jeggings, in fact tried so hard to get all of my big,fat tummy in!! I've gone from 6stone to 8 1/2stone! Obviously not overnight,in the past year and its all gone on around my middle. I'm a lady of a certain age,so let's just say I'm going to have to work VERY hard to not get any bigger. I'm quite a slender thing(or so I thought) and I cannot believe I've only today really noticed "it"!! You see I'm elaborating all this to try and make you smile. The fact still remains.......why did nobody tell me!!!

Hello Time_2_drink, I've been watching your struggle sweetheart, although I haven't replied until now, I have been cheering you on.

I can relate to how devastated you are feeling about your new dx, although my lung condition is slightly different, it is still quite recent and on top of other medical conditions.

A little while ago I came across the link below, it explains PF in language that is easy for us ordinary folk to understand, and I found it reassuring when it seemed like this might be my dx, have look petal, it might help you as well.

actionpulmonaryfibrosis.org/

You know you aren't alone and that we are all rooting for you, don't beat yourself up or feel daft, it's scary and we've all felt like that, but try to take comfort in that you at least will have a proper treatment plan and if you ask the right questions, some definite answers - write your questions down as you think of them and never, ever think that your questions are silly, after all this is YOUR health , not just a another caseload.

Sending you hugs, breaths (if I could and had any to spare!) And support
