Hello I'm new

I'm 45 I was born with 2 holes in my heart, narrowed pulmonary artery plus heart murmur also have an enlarged heart due to these problems, I also have asthma, plus a lot of other disabilities. I had whooping cough when I was younger I seem to get chest infections every year, no matter how hard I try not to. But even with all these I still smile and like jokes

Welcome to you. I too have congenital heart disease, coarctation of aorta, and had surgery in 1961, so you are a mere child! I also had whooping cough as a child, along with bronchitis at the same time, which like you has caused lung problems. I hope you keep as well as possible and are treated by someone who is skilled in adult congenital heart disease care. All the best xx
