I wrote my first column in February of this year. The column was initially part of my test to see if could be a viable candidate for employment as a columnist for Pulmonary Fibrosis News. I was kind of worried because most of my writing centered on school curriculum, professional development, and grant writing. I guess I was good enough, but I am still learning and sometimes the writing becomes too much. Coming up with ideas to keep people interested is a huge task.
In my first column I detail the scenario of when I received the call for my single lung transplant. I originally titled my column, “The Call” but it was changed. I was OK with this. The title was changed to; “Gonna Live My Life: A New PF News Column That Tells My Story.” The story details my thoughts after I received the call.
I am curious to hear from our forum members if they have received a lung transplant; how did you react?
Can you identify with some of my thoughts?
When reading my column, could you empathize with my situation?
