after reading lots of horror stories about doctors and nurses waiting times etc, i just wanted to know if i am lucky in where i live.
i live near fareham in hampshire and since being diagnosed with copd i have been seen by my nurse once a month for test and check ups etc and should i have cough or bring up anything off colour (you know what i mean yuk!) My surgery will arrange for a doctor to see me within an hour of phoning them.
I was only diagnosed in june 2013 but was told my problems started ten years ago! And i thought all those years struggling to breathe at work was because i was unfit?
I even managed to do give up smoking after thirty odd years when my very down to earth nurse said "do you really want to bloody die soon!"
I love her lol.
her and the wife have many chats about me as she says "men lie about how bad they feel until its too late".
Keep up the posts everyone i dont post much but read everyone elses and it all helps.
