What Does IPF Feel Like?

There is a campaign to help raise awareness on IPF World called Blowing Soap Bubbles.

This is the reasoning behind their campaign, “Blowing soap bubbles is a joyful activity. When you are healthy, it takes less than a second to blow bubbles. If you are a patient with IPF, this simple activity can be very challenging. The Breath of Hope Campaign aims to raise awareness of IPF while reminding about the importance of lung fitness/health.
Blowing soap bubbles can be done alone or in a group/with your family/with your doctor/with your pet – one can blow big or small bubbles; one can blow them from a special location or while doing an activity.”

I imagine that blowing bubbles when you have IPF is like blowing bubbles that are really heavy, as if they are made of ice.

Here are some links for more ways to raise awareness:
