Hi all newbie to forum.
I was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis about 10 years ago and now I have been diagnosed with Emphysema 8 months ago after a scan. I find it very hard to have a good nights sleep due waking up 2 or 3 times through the night and then I have to use my inhalers due to shortness of breath. I loved my gardening and cycling, but both have had to be put on the side due to getting out of breath. I am still working as a health and safety officer at an academy,but the walking around the building is also getting to me now. I just feel very aggitated and depressed of how much I have had to change my lifestyle. I have even on a few occassions broke down in tears just thinking of what I was and what I am now due to my condition. On a good note I am going to take my 2 young grandchildren to skeggy in August and have a good holiday.
