I'm 48 years old. I have lived in servere pain for the last three years. I am no longer able to do the things I once did. I had to sell my three horses, can no longer ride or take care of them . can't mow the grass no more, can work, I could go on all day with the things I no longer can't do, but I won't. Instead I'll tell you what I can do, watch t.v. and read. sounds pretty much like a prison , living within these four walls day in and day out. wishing that I was someone else. Not only am I in alot of pain I have copd. My mother past from this disease at 56 years old. I seen what she had to go through, I was the one that was her caregiver for 4 years. its a long horrible death. Why would I want to put my family through that. Its really hard to take care of someone with emphzema. Watching them suffer, because they can't breathe and in pain because of a hole in her lung from this disease. I was only 21 years old when she past.
