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.
