"Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is one disease that has no known cause, meaning that even a thorough evaluation most of the time can't find a particular reason for the lungs to scar."
After being diagnosed with IPF, your doctor will interview you to see if your condition can be linked to something in your environment or family history but the "Why me" question will be with you no matter what the conclusion.
After your diagnosis, it’s normal to do this but it will be wasted energy. Initially you will ask yourself this negative question all-day long and it can slowly sabotage your life and perhaps the lives of the ones around you. This is the problem with letting this question get the best of you: YOU AUTOMATICALLY LOSE!
The quality of your life may come down to a choice between the “why me” question and the “what do you want to do” or “where do you want to go” questions.
Try not to waste a single moment on any negative thoughts or actions. Instead make plans, set goals (and make those realistic) so that you can feel good once they are achieved. Than make new plans and set new goals. Share them with your family and the public so you get even more motivated and committed.
Arthur Ashe The legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery. From all over the world he received letters from his fans, one of which he conveyed,
Why did God have to select you for such a bad disease?
To this he replied:
IN THE WORLD:
"WHEN I WAS HOLDING A CUP I NEVER ASKED GOD WHY ME"?
Today in pain: why should I ask: “Why Me”?
I know what is around the corner,
I just don't know where the corner is.
