Hi fellow Bronchiectasis warriors
I have just joined the group so please bear with me if I make any mistakes ( I ain't very good with technology ) ha.
I'm 56 years old and was born with bronchiectasis ( cause unknown ) , after battling with this illness all of my life I feel my lungs have really deteriorated and my "quality of life" has went down hill. I'm finding it really difficult to keep positive at the moment, it just feeels like a never ending battle trying to keep on top of the condition EVERY day of your life.
In the winter months I feel like a recluse as I'm always ill with severe exacerbations. The only thing that keeps me going is my little granddaughter and hoping that in a few months the chest infections won't be so bad when/if our weather improves .
Was wondering if there are others in the group who were also born with bronchiectasis or diagnosed as a child and have battled with it all or most of their lives. Would be so nice to hear how they are feeling and what they do to stay positive. I do pretty well considering but have my low times like now, ha, sorry ! 🙈
Would really love to meet someone with this condition for a coffee to exchange information, someone who really understands how it feels living with this illness.
I live in the Lanarkshire/ Glasgow area in Scotland ?.
Btw....im not always so doom and gloom lol 🙈
And off course would love to chat with other "warriors" in the group...??
Best wishes to all xx
