(Beer_Me) Roach Medical issues
edited November 2018
Hi everyone , I thought I would post an upate to my condition , now that I saw the Pulmonary Specialist yesterday. It seems that my lungs are working at about 30% of what is normal. I will now enroll into a Pulmonary Rehab program which should yield some improvement with time and therapy. It seems that the minimum time involved will be like 3 months before we review it again.
They adjusted a few of my meds which now include a steriod to promte stronger lung function and different inhaler. I applied for Disability this week as well , unfortunately they say that process can take up to 120 days to approve.
I'm just gonna cut to the chase here, cause most of you guys know me and if you do not then you can ask anyone. It is not my way to ask for help , but I'm seriously in a bind.
I have no choice except to post my fundraiser here again in hopes that some of you can give a guy a hand in a bad time. So I hope no one here thinks bad about me for doing it but I am posting my GoFundMe link below.
Please donate to it even if its just a couple bucks or even a dollar. I'm sorry to post this again , but I'm stuck fella's. Thanks to everyone for indulging me.
Thanks , Rich . (Beer_Me)Roach

Hi everyone , I'm gonna post another update to my medical situation here for anyone who might be interested.
I started my Pulmonary rehab this week and it was , well lets say challenging to be honest. It looks like my condition is fairly bad for the moment . I was able to complete most of the excercises on low level , they tell me thats a good start but I honestly felt like it sucked. Spent the whole day afterward trying to practice new ways to breathe to make it easier to function without huffing and puffing like an old steam train.
So I will continue 3 days a week until it improves or they kill me , whichever comes first I guess. I think I already mentioned the changes in my medications so most of thats covered by insurance but of course I get stuck with some additional costs but luckily its mostly covered.
I am leaving the fundraiser active because I really do need some help right now, I understand its the holidays and everyone has thier own needs , I get it, I really do but at this point I have no choice but to leave the fundraiser running and hope some of you will find a way to throw a few dollars in there maybe it will add up , to maybe help me at least get the rent paid this month.
I also putting my wifes paypal below since some people have told me that alot of people do not like to use GoFundMe.
So below is a link for my GoFundMe and also my wifes paypal , I hope some of you can throw a brother a bone for the holidays .
Happy Holidays to everyone and thanks for all of your support so far.
