It is now day 145 for me! It gets easier and easier every day. I fact I don’t even think about it that much anymore. I do however still having some throat issues, trouble swallowing and recently I’ve been getting a lot of hiccups and on and off swollen lymph nodes under my jaw line. That has me really worried and I’ve been bugging my doctor to have me referred to an ENT. My doctor even without seeing me due to COVID19 has been very dismissive of my concerns and told me it’s probably jI st allergies. I DONT want guesses over the phone. So finally on September 17 (3 months after the referral was sent, I’ll be seen by an ENT. If there is a silver linning about the way that I am feeling (and I’ve had the dry cough since February) is that it scared me enough that I never want to touch a cigarette again EVER! It’s a filthy disgusting and expensive habit that will eventually kill you! I’m only 40 years old and thanks to smoking, I am now wondering if I have cancer and if I will live to see 45! I shouldn’t have to feel this way at such a young age but here we are! I urge everyone please do everything you can to quit and stay quit. Or else every pain you get, you will think it’s cancer!
