Being willing to share with others the path I am traveling while battling ‘Lenny’ (name I have given my COPD/Asthma) is almost like therapy for me while also giving me the responsibility of taking my battle seriously.
With the help of social media I know I can also reach out to others who are also fighting similar battles and hopefully at time supply a little insight, little knowledge and maybe stir up some questions.
So today I share where I am at and maybe how I may or may not be dealing with it.
A few days ago I posted that I was testing some new ground and putting my stamina on the line.
Of course I did my diligence and dosed up with a quality time on my nebulizer followed by plenty of water to stay hydrated and success was reached as I made it through the all-day seminar on photography, making the trip over and back without incident and even found time to make a couple of stops on the way home to work on that passion of photography I have found.
As for the following day, well my body felt exhausted for much of the morning – but my mind had a sense of life again as I proved I could push myself when needed to accomplish a task, of course the task was in an environmentally control room and my options of crossing paths with any COPD/Asthma triggers were slim.
While my body went through some recovery, my mind had this new sense of life with the idea of a camera in hand and ideas/opportunity everywhere I turned.
Yes I seemed to have gained a new sense for life, a reason to push through the battles with ‘Lenny’ (my COPD/Asthma) and to live each day at a new level of fulfillment.
So if you seem to be sputtering your days fighting your own battles of health – try to work past it and grab on to something (hobby, sport, music or whatever) that you find a passion for and run with it, run with that passion and let it lead you past the struggles and into the light of living.
I once again request to all to hold Kaycie Chapman down in New Zealand in your thoughts, prayers and blessings as she continues her courageous sharing of her battle with emphysema/asthma/COPD – and she continues to do it with the level of faith and hope for which we all should hope we will have when our battle and travels become much, much worse. Prayers and Blessings Kaycie.
And that my friends is where ‘Lenny’ (my COPD/Asthma) and me are at 4 today.
NOTE TO REMEMBER: Sometimes we share what may seem like medical information, but we are only giving descriptions and highlights of various aspects of having COPD and/or asthma and no way do we ever want our information to be considered medical treatment type of information, always consult your physician for more, clearer and more medical founded information.
As always – if you or anyone you know have any symptoms involving lung and breathing functionality, and they linger over and over while disrupting a lifestyle – then please ask questions and get it checked out.
Remember – a person without breathing is a person without life itself.
I bid to all – smiles, prayers, blessings and steady breathing – Mr. William.
