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.

JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

His day of victory makes all our days complete!

Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!


For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV


There will never be another act of love
so pure or triumph
so celebrated
as the humility of the cross
& the miracle of the empty tomb.

Bonnie Jensen

Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!
