Outpatients through the looking glass

Started my IVs today at outpatients as I promised myself last month. Unfortunately my lungs haven't improved enough (FEV1 2.45 / FVC 3.4) despite the lovely week in Kefalonia followed by a shit week in rain filled Manchester (actually thinking about it the two things probably cancelled each other out). Hopefully I can regain some of this LF with the IVs but I don't know. I feel like I haven't hit the heights in the house of lung in a long time now and like Slade I don't know why. Anymore.

I've looked back at some of my old posts I found this one back in late 2008 and I had an FEV1 of 3.1. Who was I then? I had an annoyingly good FEV1 despite not doing any real exercise. Since then I've taken up running, mountain biking, Steve Jobs has taken over the world, died, and Europe is doomed on a weekly basis. And despite all that time and effort into getting physically fitter I have lost 20% of my lung power and I have no idea why. My last roll of the dice is to join a gym and try and build some muscle; if that doesn't work then Vertex and the PCTs had better pull their finger out with Kalydeco because I'm fresh out of ideas on how to beat this thing called CF. The new pharmacist is really hot though ;-)

2008: Smug twat with good lung function;-)
