Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder

I learned that
I don’t feel particularly bad. But for the last couple of weeks have found myself easily winded. Today is a lovely exception: my lungs feel very clean and open. Subjectivity makes me want to credit the phone call that woke me out of my withdrawal with curative powers.
I saw the pulmonary specialist yesterday for the third time. The final time. The doctor had clearly made up her mind about things when she read the chart before seeing me. And she’s a terrible listener. Probably the worst physician I’ve ever encountered in the Duke Medical Center system.
Not that I’m not thankful to have health insurance. And very thankful to have friends who help me.
