I got seriously sick, and for about 8-10 days I was in bed with what I thought was a terrible flu. I wasn't getting better from this "flu," but worse, and I was so scared. I thought I was going to die. My friend called an ambulance, and I almost didn't make it. They worked on me for over an hour in my driveway before they had me stable enough to get to the hospital. Since that day (January 13th, 2013), I've been diagnosed with emphysema.
