Straw Challenge

I read about this great idea to help people understand how Julian feels each day, so I would like to present a challenge to you all!

I would like you to take a straw and breathe through it for a few minutes. You might think, oh that's easy! But it's not. Keep going. Little bit more. Little bit more. Are you starting to struggle? Are you breathless, do you feel an ache starting in your chest, even your stomach?

This is how Julian, and other PH, PAH & IPAH sufferers feel. Every. Single. Day. No break.

Now, take the straw out of your mouth. Feel a bit of relief? Unfortunately, Julian never gets to feel that, never gets a break from breathlessness. It's just a matter of how breathless he is, not if he is or isn't.

Let me know how you go!
