First of all, I would like to state that tho i;m still not on O2, I am terrified of this disease and what it's doing to my body. Am losing muscle mass and my extremities are thinning away. I am afraid to do exercise tho I try. Since i've been semi-laid off it;s worse, staying home will kill me. And since i'm akll alone without family i get so depressed and lonely. I know you are the only ones who can undedrstand my plight. However, am able to sleep on my stomach at night and i consider myself lucky for tis is the only way i can sleep. How do the rest of you cope with staying indoors? Well i go out everyday even if i cant do much just to be with oter people. I want to have stem cell treatments but in this country it's kind of hard. Am trying to raise money tho and theres a dr here whos doing clinical trials but on lung cancer - hqve triede to contact him. Sometimes i think my life is not worth living but i knbow i have to go on. Is it true that if caught inthe early stages, the disease will not progress? I heard of Christy Turlington's case, and she seems to be thriving. I wish I had caught mine early on.
