positive, outgoing, caring, generous
My PH StoryUnlike many PH patients, my diagnosis came quickly and out of the blue. Over about a two-week period, I noticed that I was getting winded pretty easily. I thought it was my asthma, so I’d use my emergency inhaler and relax for a bit, and I’d be okay. Then one day I had to stop and rest while going up the stairs at my house, and later that night after carrying my three-year old daughter to bed, it took me about 20 minutes to catch my breath.
"To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special." – Jim Valvano
