For a long while I've been feeling so ill. I am breathing hard just to walk, make bed, and clean, and it causes tiredness and bone pains. I got diagnosed with bronchiectasis just yesterday. I have been told there is a shadow on the lung as well. I don’t know much about this illness. I finally know what the matter is, as I have been suffering for a while. The doctor’s surgery has been great. I have a new medication. There is a long road ahead of me. I am concerned about the shadow on my lung as cancer is in my family but I need to take one day at a time.

I produce a lot of mucus every day and also have runny nose. I had a history of pneumonia at younger age. I am worried that I am slowly develop bronchiectasis.
