    Emphysema is a long-term, progressive disease of the lungs that primarily causes shortness of breath. In people with emphysema, the tissues necessary to support the physical shape and function of the lungs are destroyed. It is included in a group of diseases called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD (pulmonary refers to the lungs). Emphysema is called an obstructive lung disease because the destruction of lung tissue around smaller sacs, called alveoli, makes these air sacs unable to hold their functional shape upon exhalation. It is often caused by smoking or long-term exposure to air pollution

    I have emphasema! It's not fun to live with this disease, I push myself to do everything I used to do before I had it, perhaps even more. I use inhalers all the time and try to keep a positive attitude. My pulmonary specialist says I should be the Poster Child for Emphasema.
