    Pretty Scary

    I have had a pretty severe cold recently- coughing, stuffy nose, sore throat, etc. As of about 3 days ago, I have coughed up blood several times. It's pretty scary and humbling. I have a doc's appointment soon, so I'll see what happens. Hopefully it's not serious.

    Awful experience the other night.

    I'm currently going through chemo when i woke up choking on my own blood. Huge quantities of of it so they had to fit a chest drain fitted to try and clear the blood from one of my lungs that had suddenly collapsed
