In August of 2012 I was told I had Bronchiectasis..I left the Dr with a Neb machine and a bunch of inhalers and Azithro to take each and everyday. I was 48 with with a girl 11 a boy 11 and to older children 12 and 16. I have 3 grandchildren. My daughter is adopted by me and I married into a full family of boys. I love my life and was saving to build our very own home. Our house is small for us all and knew it was time to live the American dream..We saved and saved for 6 years. Started building and got to the roof trusses and they kept falling. This was devastating since we were doing it ourselves. So a couple of weeks ago I went to get my sugar checked. Well my liver counts were very high. The Dr says, "Your liver counts are so high and you look jaundice" thats all I had to hear since my mother is fighting now with Cirrhosis of the liver. He said, "You have Cirrhosis of the Liver I will send you to specialist". As some of you know I have MAC (NTM) and that same day was going to start treatment. Well I can't and now I have to wait to see specialist to get some more answers...so I have been depressed through the ordeal. He said you are too young for all these problems. I just shook my head in dis belief. I know I work hard with kids and my house and laundry and meals everyday. I knew in some way I am very sick. But as some of you know the aches and pains we deal with because they feel normal to us. There must be some underlying disease to be causing these problems for me. I do not drink !! I eat good food! I don't understand why I am so sick. It's just depressing and fell that I need to get things in order in case because for me to get to a Dr in the United States can take up to 3 months before I am seen. Things like this should not have to wait but here they do if you have no insurance to cover the cost. Thank you for letting me Vent!!!
