Wow. I Just Got My Warning.

Entry posted by GF Lover · - 402 views

I received my results today from my cardiologist. I have diminished lung capacity, BUT, since I have smoked my last cig a week ago, I have in effect stopped the progress of this Obstructive Lung Disease. AND it is reversible!! My heart is perfect, I was just not getting enough oxygen when stressed.

So now I keep using my inhaler and re-test in 6 months. I also start rebuilding muscle and endurance that I've lost from being sick so long. It's time to let the pain be there and go on doing what I need to do.

I don't think most people get such a clear signal from their bodies that they are going down a road that ends in serious disease. I am eternally grateful that I did.

I agree with the idea that negative symptoms can be a very good thing!  What better could keep us from eating gluten?

 

I hope you are doing well.
