    Back in 2016 I received a double lung transplant after spending three weeks on life support in a coma caused by by end stage Cystic Fibrosis.
    The transplant caused a lot of other health conditions that I currently deal with including diabetes, GERD, nerve damage and a handful of other things. After going through chronic rejection my new lungs were severely damaged and i'm in consideration for a second transplant should my health decline much more (i'm slightly to health just yet to be relisted)
    I was inspired after making a comment on my personal blog how I struggle with managing my diabetes properly and I got a lot of replies of people going through the same thing so I collaged together this video over viewing my appointment.






    I got some exciting news in the form of being offered a drug trial but I also received some bad new. I have severe acid reflux (GERD) and it is causing problems with my lungs, weight and I may need surgery in the future to fix it.

    :hug: Glad you got some supportive comments from others who are struggling. - Things are always easier to deal with when you don't feel so alone. I hope the new routine works out!
