Hi I’m currently suffering a few medical issues, I have alpha1 anti trypsin deficiency zz , genetic copd , fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, currently on oxygen 4 litres and lung capacity of 22% , awaiting lung reduction as I keep getting pseudomonas infection so they’re hoping to cut dead parts of lung out so bacteria can’t store their, then hopefully infection free long enough to have a double lung transplant as there’s no cure for alpha deficiency, also waiting to have gallbladder removed , apart from that I’m proper depressed and don’t get out I’m 49 and knackered all the time , I mean flop sort of knackered lol I’m married and Rachel is my carer, up until 4-5  yrs ago I was a bricklayer and climbing mountains involved in boxing with my boys so to go down so quick is worrying and i Fear for how long I have left at end stage copd !!!
hi to you all I’m sure people out there far worse off xx
