Maybe it’s an accident, or a disease, or the effect of long term smoking, or eating greasy foods, or not enough sun protection.
Whatever the cause, there are some conditions from which we can recover and unfortunately, some from which we cannot.
The news from a doctor is heartbreaking, sorry your knee needs to be replaced and you will have to stop skiing forever.
Your lung capacity is now at 80%. It cannot be reversed, you will need to consider a portable oxygen tank longer term.
So we all have a choice, take the smaller hit today or totally give up beloved things in the future?
