Do people always die the longest most excruciating death from lung disease or what? Is that one of them that always takes the longest and drags out the suffering the longest? I have been dying for nearly a decade and a half. It doesnt seem like my lips face and feet turn blue and purple anymore, at least not that ive seen, but really ive just improved from some diet changes, i was a zillion times worse and am not sure how i lived at all through everything i went through. Who all does that happen to, bc people have some healing from health problems all the time but they still die from them eventually? It just makes it more complicated i guess, brings SOME relief but a person still dies from it. Makes it that much more likely that it’ll never be understood. Somebody at the hospital could be like, “i thought you said you were getting better!” “Yeah but ive been dying for years” “what?” I read a post where someone mentioned their mother, that they dont take it serious when they say theyre dying because of the fact that shes complained about dying for years. And because she hasnt actually died yet, that she shouldnt take it serious. Maybe thats how it is for most people with really long term illnesses. “What? You aint dyin! You said that 5 yrs ago! Aint nothin wrong with you! You been sayin that for years, bawy, and aint nothin happenin! You aint dead!” And what when the person does die? “Oh.” Does anyone know of any stories of how lengthy of a death it seems like for people w lung disease? I have moderate lung disease so im in the middle of life and death. I am not prescribed oxygen bc its not low enough, fev1 has to be 30, mine has been 55 before. 80 is normal breathing. though i still have higher than normal carbon dioxide levels in my bloodstream. But also, obviously my lungs do not function right, its like being stuck in the middle of life n death. I have been diagnosed w both restrictive and obstructive lung disease, called “combined restrictive and obstructive”. As well as asthma and other complications some that that arent lung but it all goes together, heart liver etc. Does anyone else have a similar experience? And I know people who are on oxygen also w other forms of lung disease, and they just wait to die, its really sad, they wait to die and their suffering is extended feeling. I feel like ive been experiencing this for eternities.
