I maintain two separate blogs. One is LifeAsAnAnomaly.com where I discuss my life with sarcoidosis and the other is AChefTalksFood.blog, where as the name implies, I talk about food.

  1. I have a friend who has Sarcoidosis and Pulmonary Hypertension, both which affects the lung/breathing. I see the difficulties on a daily basis that she suffers with. She has lost about 100 lbs in the last year and is working to have her lung transplant soon. Sarcoidosis is such a mystery to me. Thanks for this article, I know this article speaks about Neurosarcoidosis, but it was very insightful. Thanks again.

    1. You are very welcome. Sorry about your friend’s condition and that it is so serious. I hope that she sees improvement or gets her transplant soon. It’s a difficult disease because every case is so very different. Thanks for stopping by, following and commenting!
