    We'll all keep praying for you I'm sure.

    Rest and try not to over due it when you do feel better. Sometimes it takes time. I'm glad you don't have pneumonia though. I've had that. It's unpleasant!

    I have my answers after visiting with the pulmonologist. I have the vaping illness that's been in the news lately. He said it's been going on for a lot longer but they had so little information that it was brushed off as bronchitis.

    Vaping got me off smoking a year ago. I bought into the healthier alternative narrative. Turns out vaping illness and death happens 100x faster than smoking illness and death.

    My case is not extreme and I'm expected to heal in about a month with supportive care. More steroids for a longer period of time for the inflammation and inhaler as needed. Thankfully I haven't even vaped since this happened because I physically couldn't so I was already ahead on healing.

    He showed me my x-rays of what they're finding in vapers. It's so crazy. I'm his 3rd patient this week and the ER has had a few as well.

    Vaping is very, very bad. Spread the word.

    I was thinking about you today actually. I'm glad they found out what was wrong.

    I'm so glad they found out what's wrong! Lord, have mercy.

    I made the exact same mistake. I encouraged my husband to get on vaping a few years ago, to get off cigarettes. We had no idea. He has lung issues now, wheezes, and has a hard time biking and walking without getting winded easily. Before vaping, he was essentially fine.

    Now he's back on cigarettes, and, paradoxically, is healthier. Somehow.

    Back on topic, I'm glad they got that diagnosed! Please take care of yourself, Faceless, and keep us updated as things get better!

    I'm moving right along in my recovery. My oxygen maintains 98, sometimes 99 with no assistance. The wheezing has almost completely stopped; there is still just a little bit. My lungs seem almost completely cleared out, just a little remains. All in all I'm doing well and I would say I'm feeling 95% normal. I'm one of the lucky ones.

    I'm glad you are recovering well.

    I didn't even know such a thing as vaping illness existed until you said that's what you had. Then I went and looked it up. Several people have died and the medical community still isn't sure what causes this. I showed my son some of the news articles. He doesn't do any of this, but some of his gaming friends do. He was shocked too.

    So, I thank you for your honesty. I got an educations out of this.

    Many people in the vaping community are blaming the illness on illegal THC vape pens, but I and many others do not use those and have still fallen ill. I wish people would wake up.
