Bad news

On tuesday last week i had a nurse ring me to tell me she had made me an appointment for the respiratory clinic on wednesday to have another scan on my lungs ,So of course i have been in a panic since as you can imagine lots of sleepless nights ,thoughts of things to do before i die ,how is hubby going to manage without me etc ,the future looks bleak and what do i have to sort before i kick the bucket .I then get the letter on saturday to inform me that i am to see a consultant ,says nothing about another scan at all .So of course what does everyone do but to google it all it just makes it worst because the only way i will get answers is to go to the appointment .Of course i am scared ,hubby wants to come in with me ,I dont know if he is allowed ,.I have told no one else in the family ,i dont want them worrying .All i can say is i feel ok i dont feel ill .I do not have trouble breathing ,i do not have a cough ,i am not coughing up blood ,i have not lost weight .So as you can imagine I have virtually stopped smoking ,I am vaping ,and having a cigarette just when it gets to be too much .I know i only have myself to blame ,i have already beat myself up about that ,so if i just disappear for a few days you will know why ,I will be wallowing in guilt and feeling sorry for myself

You can only deal with the known, not the might be. Be strong and whatever the outcome of the consultation, good or bad. Give it your best shot to make any changes you need to make.
Statistics say 1 in 2 of us will at some point in our lives be in your position but some may have nobody to turn to.
Good luck and thinking of you ×

My thoughts are with you, try to remain calm and don't worry about what might happen. Worrying will only make your life less enjoyable and it won't help with your condition. I wish you well xxx Reply

My thoughts and prayers are with you right now, please remain strong whatever it may be ahead and don’t feel away to consult within you as that is essential coping mechanism. I believe it’s what we don’t know that hurts the most, so the quicker you know the better you’d feel in control again, despite the challenge be assured your journey will continue. Reply

I'm sorry to hear of your troubles Rose but it does seem as though the damage has been irreparably done (though I do hope the scan shows otherwise) so you possibly have nothing left to lose so might as well give in to your vices and enjoy what's left. As to your husband going in with you, I'd insist upon it. Good luck. Reply

If you really gotta go Rose, can I put in a request for Children of the Revolution ? ;).
