I am so sick and tired of being so freaking weak and shaky all the time! Why does it have to be so hard to breathe and how come my doctors doesn't seam to understand how big of an impact it has on my everyday life? I mean, how can breathing problems not have a huge impact on my life? Is this the new "normal"? How am I able to learn how to deal with being out of breath all day and almost everyday?
I'm a university student that studies online however we have to go to campus a couple of times every semester. It my first time going to campus this week and I am so worried that my body and mind is not going to last all day. I really hope that I can have a good breathing and pain day!
Good luck! I wish I had answers, but I don't. Hang in there, take your time where you can, and be patient wit yourself. My mom and I both have asthma issues (I'm here for other reasons) and her's has gotten really bad, she sometimes takes 5 minutes to walk up the flight of 14 stairs in our house because she can't breath well enough and has to take breaks every 3 stairs, but the docs say "we're doing what is recomended, come back when your resting oxygen intake is below 75%" it is ridiculous! It is amazing how even the slightest oxygen deprivation makes your body and mind slow and weak. <3
Thanks! I think I'm just extra annoyed because I still don't know why I having such a hard time breathing. The problems started 7 months ago and the only thing my doctor has done is basically listen to my lungs and heart! I'm waiting to get my lung capacity tested but I haven't gotten the time yet.
I just started studying this year and I really hope I'll be able to manage it and get my degree 💪
No, my old doctor (I've changed now) just said it goes along with my diagnosis even though I've told him I really don't think it does. The new doctor is sending me to go test my lungs capacity but I'm still waiting to get the letter to see when I get the appointment. But the new doctor sounds a lot better! He doesn't think it goes along with the pain and if the lung test doesn't show anything unusual we're going to investigate further! 👍 Just waiting for that appointment now 😊
