n4seth, I like your attitude! I like that you are doing the things you enjoy i.e. biking and gardening. I hope you know to wear a mask when gardening; especially when handling store bought potting soil. It contains millions of mac in just one tablespoon of it. As far as fatigue goes, it def comes with the territory when you have mac and/or bronchiectasis. It is all about pacing oneself. When I was positive for mac, I could only get up and do some house work, or anything, for only 20 mins, then had to sit and rest for 40 mins. Things got done at a very slow pace, but they got done. My slogan was: A little bit here, and a little bit there, gets the job done! I have been free of mac since 2014 and free of pseudomonas since 2016; and although I still have serious lung issues, I have good energy most days. So, hang in there!

Thank you Terri! That’s a good reminder about the potting soil…. I definitely think that’s how I got this in the first place!
