Hi everyone, two weeks ago i found out i had a damaged heart valve, i thought it was the cause of my breathlessness. Yoday i found out i also have lung disease. I am feeling really down and scared by it all. I akready have auto immune liver disease, kidney damage (renal tubular acidosis) a damaged colon (ruptured last year) and now this. I don't know what to think. I have to see a specialist for inhalers etc, i am also being sent to have a chest x-ray. I always hoped i would get back to work one day, now i just feel like giving up. I live on my own so i have lots of time to get paraniod. Any thoughts anyone???

You see, my meds had finally kicked it! Anyway, he took my hair...
