New Journey, to my New Life

I've been having great difficulty with my lungs the past couple years. I was always told that it was asthma. Well after going to the hospital recently, and going through so many tests, I'm now told that I don't have asthma, I have cronic bronchitis/COPD. Which is Cronic Obstructive Pulmenary Dieases. My airways are badly damaged, which could be caused from second and third hand smoke, from where I worked for a number of years, as well as fumes from commercial bug sprays, also at ...
I've been having great difficulty with my lungs the past couple years. I was always told that it was asthma. Well after going to the hospital recently, and going through so many tests, I'm now told that I don't have asthma, I have cronic bronchitis/COPD. Which is Cronic Obstructive Pulmenary Dieases. My airways are badly damaged, which could be caused from second and third hand smoke, from where I worked for a number of years, as well as fumes from commercial bug sprays, also at work. The damage in irreperable, and there is no cure.
So now I must learn all I can about COPD, and learn how to take care of this situation, so as to avoid any more damage to my lungs. And that won't be so easy, as you can't avoid all this, when you're out in public. As all the stores allow people to smoke outside the front doors of the stores. And I can only hold my breath for so long, to reach inside the stores. And there's all the other polutions that are out there too.
So I'm going to try to do stretches and try my stationary bike, to do a bit of exercise each day. I still want to be on my program, even though I get tired so quickly because of the continuous wheezing and coughing 24/7.
And of course, with a lot of prayers too.

My Goals:
I have recently been diagnosed with Chronic Bronchitis/COPD. I've been having a lot of problems with my lungs the past couple years. And It's been getting worse as each month went by. I wheeze and cough 24/7. And it's very hard to get sleep at night, with all this. So I'm also sleep deprived. The best naps I can get is sitting up in my rocking chair. But I'm going to start slowly with some stretchings and light exercise, and work my way slowly. I know it's going to take a while to get to where I was before. But I must forge ahead. I can't let this beat or control my life.

My goals are to lose the excess weight I''ve been carrying around for years. I want to take charge of my life now so I can become as healthy as I can, because I want to be around to watch my grandbabies grow up, as well as my great-grandbaby.

I''m tired of not living, only existing. I''m claiming my life back, so I can live again.

My Program:
I now have to watch for "Flare Ups" with Fibromyalgia, as well as COPD "Flare Ups". So I just do what I can, when I can.

I also am diabetic, have arthritis, and thyroid problems, and a form of epilepcy. As well as other medical problems. And many of the meds I have to take, have the side effect of weight gain. So it is an uphill battle, but I''ll keep going up that hill.

Personal Information:
I''m from Ontario Canada.

Other Information:
I am recently learning to do PSP, and learning to do animations for some of my other groups. Just love it. But very addictive.

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }


'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!


(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.

In your birthday cake (belated), I want to dedicate one slice to love, one slice to courage, one slice to determination, one slice to peace of mind and one slice to fortune. May all these slices come together to form a life for you which is sweeter than any cake in this world.
