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.

~There was a blind girl who hates herself because she was blind. She hated everyone except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, " If I could see the world, I'd marry you". One day someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, " Now that you can see the world, will you ......marry me?" The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at him for the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying; " Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine." This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what our life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations. Today before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who cant speak. Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat. Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion. Today before you complain about life - Think of someone who went too early to heaven. Before you complain about your children - Think of someone who desires children but they are barren. Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep - Think of the people who are living in the streets. Before whining about the distance you drive - Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet. And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job. But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another - Remember that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one MAKER. And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and thank God you're alive. Please copy, paste, and pass this on. I have a feeling it will bless someone else who needs to be refocused just as it did me
