When the disease is active and you have trouble breathing and cannot get enough oxygen it is very difficult to do life. You are constantly exhausted, if you have it to the level that I did I was on disability and could not do my job not being able to work and participate in life is like being in limbo there are so many everyday things you just cannot do it's easy to fall prey to depression. The medication cure that they give, which is a long course of high steroids gradually reduced over time create a whole nother set of problems. If you are lucky like I was they're able to stop the inflammation in your lungs, you can get off of oxygen and go back to work it does seem though that I am not the person I was before but I am grateful for what I have.

Since I got this in my lungs, my doctor called it BOOP, the worst part is getting pneumonia a lot! It is hard to breath so they put me on prednisone and antibiotics so much that the medicine causes more problems. It comes on so fast, within a few hours I know that am in trouble because it is painful to take a breath. Another thing is people don't think that am sick and they just don't get it when I try to tell them I can not do a lot of things they think I should do. I get overexertion very easily. They do not understand my lung disease. If I could be rid of one thing it would be the tiredness and breathing difficulties.

Normally worsening respiratory conditions such as COPD, Bronchiectasis, asthma. Cough, breathlessness are common and in some cases haemoptysis. It is often treated as asthma/COPD for some time and it is only when further investigations following increasing and uncontrolled symptoms results in a referral to a local hospital.

A chest x-ray that shows scarring, cavities, growths are often interpreted as possible lung cancer. Once cancer has been eliminated (which can be difficult) patients are referred to more highly specialised services - in the UK there is the National Aspergillosis Centre in Manchester (NAC). www.nationalaspergillosiscentre.org.uk

There are resources online that are worth visiting - www.aspergillosis.org, www.aspergillus.org.uk.
