There you go! Now you know! So carry on on with your life like you always have. You will get tired. Take a nap. Wear your oxygen at all, if you are prescribed it. If you can afford it, get pne of those portable oxygen concentrators. Over here, they're $2500. I cannot afford one, so I lug around medium sized tanks. I have bought a festive backpack for mine. That way I have everything I need with me. Anyway, don't let them get you down. ANYBODY! BE SALTY!

Hey AnneĆ 
your story you wrote got me a guy 60 years old I was in good shape until started having issues that started with my lungs.I never complained just did what they said until of course it got bigger and big well I on oxygen full time at night and trying to get better during the day.Because of something OI read in your write up of your story got me to exercise.Every day now I do it at least 12 times a day or at least once every hour as just sitting on the couch at any rate so what have I got to lose.Hope fully my gut as never have one of these before in 60 years & I hate it to.Also make getting air into my chest I swear is harder as well .So Thank You so very much getting me going forward

Advantage plans are actually private insurance companies who buy out your Medicare options. They make a profit off the deal if they don't pay for the care you need. They will send you denial letters even if what you need is covered. You have to appeal and appeal and appeal. If you can't afford a good lawyer, check out your nearest Legal Aid office.
