I have been having histo for a year now, my symptoms have improved, but that can change anyday now. I think this is why it is so hard to get disability.

It's probably histoplasmosis. It's an infection in the lungs (I think.) that can be picked up on a chicken farm, for example, from birds' droppings. Or from bat caves.

lol Dencha. One of the secretaries at our school years ago had histoplasmosis so this was the first I'd heard about it. She grew up on a chicken farm in Tennessee. In her case it's been lingering all these years but I really don't know if that's normal or if it's because it wasn't properly treated. Then I read that you can get it just spelunking in bat caves! (As if you'd find me doing that!) tongue
