How Pulmonary Fibrosis Complicates Simple Appointments and Everyday Tasks
As patients with a chronic illness, I know many of us have weeks that are full of medical appointments and we’re often left feeling both physically and mentally exhausted. Somehow many of my appointments land on the same week, and I reflected on this experience in a column I wrote about a month ago called, How Pulmonary Fibrosis Complicates Simple Appointments and Everyday Tasks.
In this column, I talked about how my disease has made it harder for simple appointments like going to the dentist, hair or nail appointments and other basic errands we still have to do regularly. It was interesting to hear from others’ how much that column resonated with them, as they too find this disease complicates simple tasks.
In addition to the appointments I mentioned in my column, I’m curious to hear whether others find specific appointments or daily tasks challenging with this disease, and in particular, which ones?
Do you have any tips on managing the difficulty?
