Hello , my name is LIse and I will be fifty years old this year! I live in Ontario Canada , I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis in 2006. The illness has scarred my lungs and skin on my lower legs. I deal with inflammation throughout my body and especially my sinuses.
I was hoping I would get better within the 2 year mark as most cases but unfortunately I have the Chronic form of the disease. I am unable to work , drive or walk very far due to severe shortness of breath but I am an optimist and manage to live a happy quiet life.
I am blessed with a wonderful partner who helps me both physically and emotionally I have Sarcoidosis but it doesn't have me!!! I pray for a cure to this terrible disease, hopefully it will be in my lifetime!
