My Life with Pulmonary Fibrosis
Living with pulmonary fibrosis is not easy. The path to diagnosis is difficult. Adjustment to daily living and oxygen can be exhausting. But one thing we realize is that we are more than just patients. We are also spouses. Close friends. And adult children. Our friends and loved ones are our greatest source of strength and support, which is why during November, National Caregiver Month, we recognize the profound impact they have on our lives in this collection of stories.
