I have a good friend with this...she has to take precautions...no smokey environments...stay inside on high pollen days, etc...but she's doing ok. I think the trick is a good doctor.

So sorry to hear of your diagnosis.

A relative has been diagnosed with that disease. From everything I read it is progressive and cannot be cured but there are drugs available to make you more comfortable. Life span 5 years, average 3 years from diagnosis often from complications such as a heart attack.
