Do You Still Work With PH?

Do You Still Work With PH?

In general, and as much as you are willing to share, do you work? What type of work and hours, etc.

I am just beginning "my journey" with PH as my Pulmonologist says. I have not work due to COVID and I have been lucky to be taken care of.

However, I am super excited to start a job because I enjoy the work that I will be doing (data entry/Office Assistant). I am a complete nerd and love office supplies. I just think that there is a reason that this job was available and offered to me.

Hi Uraiwan. I think it is good that you want to work and I hope your new job is a good fit for you. I am 62 now and haven't worked since I was 50 because I have needed to care for my Mom. I am fortunate that I don't have to work but I think I could if I had to. I know I wouldn't be as healthy as I am if I didn't have to get up and go somewhere every day. Let us know how it goes please and don't forget to start working on our PH cookbook! 🤭
