    With all do respect, I am at a point now where my
    Concerned doctor is trying very hard to control
    my COPD, if that means trying things out of the
    ordinary, all I want to do is breath for two
    full months at a time. All kinds of puffers right
    now, prednasone off and on,and theophylline,apo-theo-la, spiriva, do not qualify yet for oxygen, however a future possability, wear a mask outdoors in the winter, summer is ok. be optomistic, live
    one day at a time (AA philosophy program which works for me) and spread little bits of joy.
