up in smoke

So, there are some fires in the us and the smoke has traveled to Calgary turning the city into one big giant campfire.
Because of my Sarcoidosis I am in so much pain, my throat is sore, my chest is sore, I can't stop coughing and I can't sleep. 
This whole sarcoidosis thing is new to me and I have to say I hate it. I don't know how to treat it and I absolutely hate coughing all the time, its loud and annoying and painful.
Anyways my darling husband brought me home a diffuser and I have to say its really helping. Ive also been using a humidifier, cough drops and lots of water.
This new diagnosis does stress me out i must say, its so vague and the symptoms can become way worse or completely go away.
Don't get me wrong, I would much prefer sarcoidosis to lymphoma, (the mimic pretty much the same symptoms.)
But at the same time I hate sweating all the time and being short of breath.
Hopefully this will be the end of chronic illnesses for me. 
In the meantime I will try and look at the bright side, I have a wonderful husband to keep me company while I am stuck in the house hiding away from the smoke.
