Broken Body

Dear Readers,
My body just doesn’t want to give me a break.
I have been struggling with breathing issues, which over the last 6 months have gotten worse.
I can’t catch my breath if I do anything physical, even sometimes just doing the laundry is really hard.
The last time I played golf with a friend, I was gasping for air.
My primary doctor said I had asthma, then she said it’s not asthma. She had my heart checked, and that was okay.

I haven’t been able to do yoga, and kept having to leave because of not being able to breathe.
Last Monday night, I had to go to the ER after I left yoga because I couldn’t catch my breath.
What they found on my chest x ray is that I have emphysema and fibrotic changes in the lungs.
So on Monday I will be going into see a lung doctor.

I have never smoked.
Of course, when I read about these lung problems on Google, I get even more upset.

It’s been heavy week. My emotions are all over the place. I know I have no choice but to accept this, but it is scary none the less. 

I have made it through many health problems.  I know I will live with this one. But in the meantime, all I want to do is cry.

With Much Love,
On Day 1,119,

  1. Oh gosh…cry all you want; it helps get the sad out. Of course you are all over the place emotionally. All good thoughts from me to you and big virtual hugs. Strength and courage.


  2. I am sorry to hear about this Wendy. If its any consolation my mum (who has stage 1 emphasema) feels much better when she takes her steroid pump. There are things they can do to make you feel better. Lots and lots of hugs and love. xxx


  3. Hi Wendy I am really sorry to hear your news. This just doesn’t seem fair. Sending you hugs and hoping the sun shines again on you and Mr Un-tipsy very soon. Flossie xxx


  4. Oh, Wendy, I'm so sorry to hear about this. Sending you long-distance hugs and prayers! I know it must be so distressing not to be able to play golf and do yoga. Thinking of you…xx


  5. I hope you're feeling better now and I'm sorry you have been suffering with this. I saw your latest post about things not being as bad as you feared and I'm glad this is the case. Take care, hugs 🙂 x
