I told everyone it was only asthma that I had. Unfortunately, I became very sick and had to go to the hospital. My doctor said I had pneumonia, and he put me in the hospital. After a while, he said he needed to run some tests. He did several tests, and the next morning he sat by my bed and said, "You have moderate to severe emphysema." I asked, "How can you use moderate and severe in the same sentence? I want a second opinion."
