I have written about my experience with Bronchiectasis. I discovered I had this condition when I was just 19 years old and have lived with the incurable disease ever since. There have been ups and downs and I have detailed my experiences in this short story. This is not a medical book and I am not a doctor so it will not teach you how to cope with the illness or what medicines you should take. When I searched for information on my condition I couldn't find anything that told me what other people had been through and so I thought I would write my personal experiences down for other people to get a sense of what can happen and how I managed as I grew older and still do.

5 Star review on Smashwords: I read this book and found it as a heartbreaking true story. It is amazing to me how this woman could go through what she has and still have a positive attitude. I have known people that has had some disease that is crushing. I know what she means when she says that she is short of breath. To live with it as long as she has must be terrible. If you have a disease that is as bad as this one, read this book. It may help you hold your head up high, as she has done. I can only say that I wish her the best for the rest of her life. I am now 76 with a breathing problem and other things, but to get something like she has at such an early age, she must be very brave. I thank her for sharing her story.
