I’ve had a long-running dialogue with myself: “Go on! Do it! Take that walk. You’ll never improve if you don’t “ But then I say, “give me a break. I’m 82, I had a lobectomy, I have bronchiectasis,
don’t I deserve a break?” But I do it. I go for that walk. I force myself to walk the third loop of the (short) trail, stopping to catch my breath. I’m so tired when I get home 25 minutes later. This morning I feel a warning stab of pain in my upper back, just like when I had my last infection. I can’t ask my dr or nurse, they’re busy with Covid. Give me some advice.
