What does it feel like?
Ashley Davidoff MD Copyright 2015
Take a breath and hold it-
While holding that breath … Take another breath on top of that – and hold it –
While holding that breath .. Take a third breath on top of that – and hold that – and then do it a fourth and a fifth time
and maybe a 6th if you can
That is what emphysema feels like!!!
No more room in the chest to take in any fresh air
It is beyond discomfort – With no relief …
You cannot take a magic medicine
And wake up the next morning
.. and finally take in a full deep breath of fresh air
Like you used to do
You have lost that blessing of life
Medicine and oxygen may help
The ability to feel a full breath of pure fresh air….
That feeling is gone forever…
Why did I not listen?
