I really thought that I was dying slowly, alone, from the inside. These past few weeks I had been having some troubling with my regular breathing. Basically all of the time I sounded love a wheezing pig. I kept running out of breath and coughing all of the time. What really went and made me finally see a doctor was when I started coughing up blood for weeks. You never want blood to come up to the outside of your body, especially your mouth. My doctor told me all of these signs are early stages of deadly lung cancer. As a non smoker and never really been around cigarettes, I was beyond shocked that lung cancer was thrown out there. After doing a very thorough check up, my doctor expertly concluded that I must have been inhaling radon for a long time at home. Apparently, according to what my doctor saw, I must have been solidly inhaling radon for over 20 years. If the radon gas is just there, consistent and drastic enough, lung cancer can form because of it. Right after going and hearing this news I was scared to hear words love chemo, payments and tons of bed rest. Before I did any sort of medical treatment though, I attacked the giant complication in my home. My home had let radon seep straight through the cracks in the foundation for over 20 years. Because of this fact, I am going to have to go through an expensive and horrible process. I also finally have a radon mitigation system in my home, and I honestly do suppose a lot better. I still have lung cancer now, even though I am more hopeful now that I am no longer actively getting poisoned anymore.
