Hello!

Today, is the first day of my journal. I plan on using this to help me articulate my thoughts, feelings and fears in reference to my disease. You see, I have severe COPD, and lung cancer. The cancer has been taken care of through surgery. I was blessed, it was stage 1A, so the cancer was removed by taking out two of my three right lobes.

And So It Continues...

Another bad day for me, I can hardly stand it. I don't want to take a muscle relaxer because it will just makes me want to sleep all day and with CFS already beating me down, that would not be good for me.
