Hello, I have just joined. I was diagnosed 6 years ago and have been trying to "go it alone" so to speak but lately I have found it increasingly difficult to keep the "chin up" and always tell hubby and kids I'm fine when I'm not.I have a very supportive hubby and all our kids are out on their own. My best friends live in different States than I. One lives in NC and the other in Alaska and all my family live in Australia. Most of my friends here have slowly disappeared as they couldn't handle my illness even though I am not one to complain nor ask for help.I am thinking about the TX route at the moment, getting a bunch of tests done on the 5th March.....I wonder, is any one TX center better than another? Also, I get the distinct feeling that my pulmo doesn't really feel that is the way to go.Anyway, hello :)

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
