"It's been one-and-a-half years since I was diagnosed with Black Lung.
Looking back on my last photo my wife said look how much I have aged.
I see myself in the mirror every day but didn't notice how far I have gone down hill. I'm coughing up blood most days now and can hardly carry a small pot plant.
Most doctors don't understand this disease.
Workplaces don't want to know. Black Lung victims are put on the surface out of sight.
Workcover doesn't recognize this disease.
Victims have lost their jobs and homes with no money coming in.
