Thank you and Happy 2019

Hello everyone

I just wanted to thank everyone on here who has responded to various of my confused posts since I began this curious lung journey in August 2018. It began with pneumonia which wouldn’t go, and I have a long awaited appointment at the Brompton in March. I appear to have scarring on the lungs, have never smoked, but the tests show obstruction and asthma.

I tend to come and go on here as I’m totally confused about what’s wrong with me, but I just feel better knowing that you are all out there, struggling in your own ways and supporting each other through enormous difficulties. Thank you.

I send everyone love and hope for health and joy this year .

I do hope that Pete continues to improve. It looks like he ( and you) have been through really tough times recently. Xxxx

Thank you, it’s a slow process. It’s been a horrible time but Petes doing better now.

You take care. Xxxx

Aw bless. We all started somewhere in our journey with our illness and I can't think of a better place than this to learn more about it. I know I did when I joined many moons ago. x

Thank you hypercat and hope you are in a good place now.

Happy New Year Hellodolly!!

You are being referred to a top Lung hospital, they will find the right treatment for you.

Take good care of yourself xx

Thank you 🦋 Wishing you a happy new year too.

Thank you - I hope all is well in Hufflepuff land. 🌈🦄🦄🌺xx

What a lovely post.

I hope you get the treatment you need and quickly.

Keep posting, it helps.

Good wishes meantime.

Thank you so much. When you get such different views on what might be wrong ( ie: ‘well we thought it was bronchecstastis but the scan says no’ or ‘you don’t respond to ventolin on one test but another shows you are asthmatic’ ‘Maybe it’s organising pneumonia - it probably isn’t - etc) it is hard to know what to post any more!! All I know now is that lung problems are not straightforward. I hope you are well xxx

You are so right there.

Hope you get the right diagnosis so you can feel better.

Good wishes
