Hi, I have been here before. I am feeling very down because I have gone from mild to moderate on a chest xray and my energy level has decreased. Breathing not too bad at all but lungs are heavy and I have not done anything too strenuous. I have a few questions:
Can you stay at moderate for a while if yiu have good ling function? My FEV1 is still normal. Not sure yet about the rest.
With the exercise and medication (I take Advair) can you stay at this level for a while?
Right before the chest xray and new symptoms, I felt fine and had arranged a blind date. Now my self-esteem has gone way down and I am very nervous about telling someone (not right away if things seem good, but soon). I am ready to cancel. I am looking for some general encouragement regardless of canceling the date.
I am only 57. I am afraid I only have a few years. Am so discouraged. Any words of wisdom would be a godsend. Thank you!
