Hi I also live in Florida. I was infected 4 years ago and the town where I live there’s a lot of new construction with homes. My local pulmonologist said I could have been affected by all the open soil and dust flying around. But I know our water here is not the best also. I was so scared at first but life goes on and we try to live the best life that we have. I hope you feel encouraged and feel better. Also I pray that you doctors will work with you so you can make the best decision. This group has helped me so much! I am blessed to have found so many friends with so much knowledge of this disease. Hugs Rita.

I live in Leesburg in central Fl. I just learned 3 days ago about my MAC he is going to do a bronco next week to get a sample from my lungs to see how bad mine is. My heart doctor found my problem while doing xray of my heart. I have never had any problems so this would not have been found yet if not for my heart doctor. Thank God. My pulmonologist will send me to Gainesville for treatment. This I am so worried about all the side affects. I moved to my dream retirement spot and now I learn Florida is making me sick. Don't that suck. Thanks for the info and God bless you, the doctors don't tell you all so we have to ask questions from those that have been there. Pat
