I wrote a post months ago saying why can't I stop smoking, now i have for 3 months not interested now!!! I ended up in ICU first on a breathing machine I was really ill. I can breathe easier now and walk a bit further great outcome. The hospital took great care of me I was impressed by the NHS we are very lucky in Scotland to have such a great service. I have severe COPD been diagnosed 4 years ago, life is a big struggle, with the support I receive, I manage day to day, but I do give sympathy to everyone that has this illness. I would like to ask what questions I should be asking my specialist, I would like to go on the transplant list, how do I get to that point!!! Everybody smile be happy that is the best medicine for all. make the most of every day.
