I was diagnosed in 2011 with IPF. Like most patients I went through a cycle of disbelief, fear, anger and finally acceptance. It took me a solid year to go through the cycle and I still have moments of both fear and anger. My wife, Patti, and I are both warriors in raising awareness and my personal goal is to inspire other patients to live with their diagnosis and I hope to be an example of that. I was recently interviewed by the Dallas Morning News about my fitness routine and living with IPF which is at http://bit.ly/DFW-IPFt
I created a video three years ago outlining how I am conducting my battle with IPF. Since then little has changed. I am still thinking, eating, moving and living as I did when I made this video. It frustrates and angers me that so little progress has been made in halting IPF and since this short video over 150,000 people have died from pulmonary fibrosis in the US alone.
