Have been looking at a post of mine that i did 8 months ago when i started at a gym where i said what and how long i could do on a treadmill on incline and rowing machine and other things has i would never ever go to a gym and used to hate exercise but joined a gym has was diagnosed with COPD

But wow i am amazed what i could do then and what i can do now and how good i feel after doing these things so any new diagnosed people if you can exercise this is a must,believe me i felt so upset and scared when told i had this COPD but now after exercise i feel so much better and fit and i dont mean pumping up your muscles just doing what and when you can..all the best music

Yes medow go to the gym. The exercise will lift your mood and make you feel better about yourself, and remember a little bit of exercise is better than no exercise.

music, this is such good news to hear. I would encourage others too. The gym and my drugs saved me! Well done, music!
