As a child I had colds with a lot of coughing as I got older things were worse. I lived in a house with everyone smoking but me. When married I got away from the smoking but with that I was getting my thyroid taken out. That’s 30 years that I’ve had bad colds with the coughing. I’m on second bad cold now. Then I got a lung infection thats been going on month with all coughing I’ve been on 2 antibiotics and 4 cough syrups. Dr. is sending to lung Dr. So tired of coughing!!!

    We hear you BethAnn and appreciate your candid presentation of your experiences with second hand smoke and other medical conditions. It’s good to hear that you are going to see a pulmonary physician (you did mention a ‘lung doctor’). Perhaps now you will get a thorough examination and a definitive diagnosis. We wish you luck! Please do check back and let us know how you’re doing.
    All the best,
