I am so angry ,its been such a lovely day and my breathing has been down and I have spent most of the day on nebs and oxygen!Has anyone else been suffering?We wait for the good weather to come and then you get some idiot like me complain lol have found the air quite muggy today,and have had to double up on meds because my breathing became quite labored at one point..Still I have managed to stay out of casualty..Hope your all enjoying the sun and feeling as well as can be..xx

Hi porche what a shame on such a lovely day. I saw the sun this morning, did my exercises with ease, felt on top of the world then it was downhill from there. Not health wise but people wise. Now I will join you in being a grouch.

lol people you can shut the door on...Keep exercising and think of number one, Your not well,and grouch to me all you want bless x

I had an early neb this morning as well, which is very unusual for me. I've been a bit breathy all day. I just get on with th9ngs, though, and try to ignore the damn thing ! :)

My breathing has been down all day,think thats why I am heading for early night..Used up all my reserves! I really push myself not to let it get at me ,but it seems to win when I got no puff left! I have pushed myself all day,but I am beat lol..Take care x

Hi again yes ,life can be very unfair .same as you say you start thinking all sorts when you see all the drunks non workers and druggies and you think ,bet they can breathe. Now you started me off !!!! Then sometimes you feel guilty for thinking that. Mind you that dont last long. ! Did i see that you live in Taunton ? We live in staffordshire. But i got a cousin who lives near Taunton ,and my grandson did a. Cricket tournament in Taunton last year. He was there a week and enjoyed it a lot Hes only 14 but playes for Staffordshire ,so hes all over the place. Barbados next year. ! We try and follow him as much as possable depending how i am. Thats another thing to make me angry !! Anyway hope yiou bit better come mornin nite n bless. Sue. X

Yea makes my blood boil sometimes,but who knows what the future holds for them! I used to live in Stogumber they have a cricket ground there,and I now live in Crowcombe just up the next village and we have a cricket ground here.....Staffordshire a lovely place to live..I am welsh and moved to Somerset about 15yrs ago,Love it here.. Take care and keep smiling Laura x

How are you feeling now ? Is your breathing any easier ? I say to bill if my breathing was ok i cope with all the other things ....side effects from steroids etc ..but hey ho thats the way it is for us ! We,ve been to a lake not fad from us in the moorlands. Only went cos felt hubby needed time out you feel guilty dont you !we gott parking spot right by edge of lake took flask of tea and crisp butties. And watched healthy people running about. !Felt like tripping some of them up but then thought better of it.!!! Back home now having nebs etc and going have a lie down . I thohught about you while we were out and was telling. Bill abt you. . He said he wouldnt know wat was worse being struck down suddenly like you and having to cope with the shock or having it 60 years like me and not really knowing any different ? Good job we no all same and can help occasionally. Take care and god bless. Sue. XX

Well I had a lovely day, sat reading in the garden. My breathing is always better in the summer.

I have always been a sun worshipper and would follow the last bit of rays in the garden..I am struggling with it now..Good on you Toci,enjoy the next few sunny days..Laura x

What a b..... shame! Don't blame you for feeling grouchy!

Hope today will be better for you! xxx

Morning you aren't a grouch I also look forward to the nice weather. Then blummin can't breathe as soon as it comes, nights and mornings are always worst for me now it's nights mornings and afternoons lol keep smiling

Aww Victoria,its a horrible place to be hunny..I hate the damn disease think I would rather be in pain than this..I am getting worse by the day..My breathing is so down sometimes I wonder if its worth it, and hopefully this op will give me some or just a little bit of my quality of life back..Her's hoping..Take care sweetheart and hope the weather is being kind to you xxx

Hiya Porche I know where your coming from,although my breathing can be as bad in the summer as in the winter and I do dread a heat wave now,I just find summer mentally better than the dreary damp coldness of the winter months.Dont be harsh on yourself there are loads of us that have probs this time of year,so many bits floating about in the air I find, warm to hot air doesnt feel like proper fresh air some how,does that sound chinese lol? :) Janexx

Yea I know,We are all in the same boat,some worse than others and the ones that are not as bad as us will progress to this stage sometime..Summer good for the serotonin to give us that "good mood" feeling and I love summer,just wish I could breathe to enjoy it..I have got to the stage where my breathing is low constant so it makes you feel yuk!

I am carrying a lot of fluid around tum and ankles..Taken water pills but they dont seem to be working for some reason , must be the heat..I know what you mean about the air quality ,chinese lol you are funny..Thanks for msg good to hear from you ..Take care xx

You are allowed to be a grouch!! Let's hope tomorrow is better for you lots of love TAD xx

Hi sweatheart just noticed this post . Bloody hell you going thu the mill. I bet you are fed up with things. Wish there was something i could do x its not fair is it ( under statement ) are you getting plenty of help from your resp nurses .They verry good arent they but all you want to is to be able to breathe ...not too much to ask is it ! Whats the plan then with treatment. ?? Hope they got some sort of treatment lined up ! Howw is your boyfriend copeing ? Bet he worried to death ? Well now i fired all these questions at you. I let you get some rest. . Keep in touch. Nite n bless. Xx. Sue

Hi there laura how are you feeling today ? Any better or still in general state of disrepair ? Right then whats the plan health wise ? Surely you must be nearer the top of list for surgery after all this palaver ! How do you feel about having it done ? Silly question i suppose but just wondered ! I often think whatever they suggested to do that would help i,d give it a go must be exhausted you poor thing. And all these "add ons " we get dont help another day ..another bloody challenge. .! Ive not been too bad really i still keep wakeing up in the mornin. !!! We supposed to be going to dorset in 2 weeks one day i look forward to it then i dreading it . We go every year so know the area and whhere hosp drs etc is and know the people . My son said the only facilities we not used is bloody coast guard !! But there time yet ! Well going now room sercvice bringing cuppa. You take care lots of love. Sue. X

HI Sue firstly my lappy still poorly and this one doing my head in lol as some of the letters dont work..I am still awaiting date for op,so none the wiser.Although they are sending correspondence to my g,p so that is progress lol,I am petrified but at the same time hoping it will help me breathe a bit better..glad you feel a bit better and hope Dorset will cheer you up a bit..I fell asleep earlier,and its now time to sleep I'm wide awake.I never slept last night as I re homed my westie today to a lovely cpl from dorset that lives by the beach..It broke my heart as i had him 12yrs,the house is quite without him, but I know he will spend what yrs he has left happy..It got such a struggle I couldn't even let him out until i had my nebs and then my breathing would take ages to come up,poor mite would be crossing his legs..I adored him but feel relieved in a good way as I have so many hospital admissions and apps with docs nurses etc its for the best.. They tell me he is so happy I can get on and not worry about him.I tried dog sitters but so expensive..Still get a lump in my throat,but he's happier now and enjoying his new life..

On a lighter note, have a fantastic time in dorset and get some fresh air down those lungs..I am swigging the oramorph and taking my tabs to get back to noddy land..Take care lots of love L aura x

Oh sweatheart how awfull having to re home your little dog !! This bloody disease affects everything doesnt it it ,i,m so sorry. You must feel devestated .only people who are dog lovers will appreciate how upsetting it is its one thhing after another for you . You tried your best and sometimes you can only do so much . Will these peopl keep in touch with you. And let you know how he is ? We had Sally when she was 9 months old off a lady who had cancer and couldnt cope...she was heartbroken too. I kept in touch with her. Photos etc and letters. But then i didnt knoe if i was dragging the agony out for her her did it for couple years then gradually stopped. All i can say is she settled in from. Day one !! At a risk of repeating my self what a bugger !! We lucky cos bill at home all day so takes charge of walking feeding etc . I do hope they push you to top of list and get you helped wich hosp do you attend ? I really hope and pray things start to improve for you for you. Message me any time. Sue. XXxX

I am heartbroken but it got to the stage it got too much for me.. I had to cancel his haircuts twice as my breathing went down,cost me a fortune for ppl to walk him and the last time i showered him I ended up in hospital..Val the lady who has him has phoned and they love him, they live right by the beach in exmouth, I am sort of relieved in a way as he was spoilt rotten by me but beach and walks will top that bless him..I was on nebs other day as soon as I woke up and Jack my westie was barking to go out I couldn't see to him for ages, so that was the decider really.Your right life can be a bitch sometimes and re homing Jack is another change in my life ,but I dont have to worry about him now bless..

I go to Musgrove in Taunton, I have been to pulmonary rehab twice,and came first on the knowledge about Emphysema lol I should think so, I have had it since I was 36 lol...I know all the respiratory staff and threads after care team..Think they sick of my face,but will say they have been fantastic...

How are you doing Sue? How are you feeling?I hope your ok? Take care nice to hear from you and thanks for caring..Look after yourself .. Laura xxxxx

Well this is my third attempt to write a message ! Each time i get nearly to end i pressed something and everything gone !!! Bill walkes sally with his friennd who got a westie he called max and is a bugger any dog comes near sal and he,ll have a go at them no matter how big they are ! Bill says he sure one day they,ll brinb him home in a bag !!! One day a bullmastive chased him he ran thru the park railings and got his head stuck. !!! The fire brigade had to come and cut him out. And then he had a go at firemen. ?!!! Bill was in state of collapse with laughinng wen he came home. What are the threads nurses ? Do they come in regularly to you ? Does someone come in daily i hop they do ....i send bill over !!!! He does really well he 78 and walkes miles and does all the housework. He 12 years older than me we both been married before but been together 30 years and known each other 40 years Bloody hell ....long time eh ? Well i go now before i wipe everything off again. Hope this has kept you amused for afew minuits . Get plenty of rest and i sure your little fury friend be ok ..when you had your surgery you could go and spend a day or two visiting him that be nice wont it. !!! Sleep well and God bless. Sue. X

Haha, some westies are like that, they think they rule all dogs, Jack thought any dog would play, He is placid in nature, I often kept him close as he thought all dogs was there for him to play,,How nice you have a lovely hubby, I was married 17yrs to a school teacher 3 kids but he was so boring I stuck at it for the kids sake, Met a guy then and stayed with him 13yrs,, He thought I was going to die once, and robbed my bank of a few hundred, unfortunately I lived and he ended up in a caravan lol.. No second chances for him..I gave him everything to start afresh mugs tea towels cutlery etc..I am now with Darren , he is an electrician,he and a friend work together..They set up on their own yrs ago,, Darren is 49 and I am 56 . Age is just a number, he has been my rock through every thing..I scared him senseless when I had my first exacerbation but he is used to it now bless..

The thread nurses care for ppl with chest problems, and work you to death in the gym pulmonary rehab.. When you come out of hospital they come to your home for a week or so till your back as well as can be.. they phone me most days to see how I am and how I am coping.. They are a godsend..

Morphine just kicked in so I will bid you good night lol Sleep well big hugs Laura xxxx

Feeling a tad better thanks..Had my friend Sue stay last night to keep me company as am still breathless . I told her I will sleep on sofa as I am on a tilt with the arms which help my lungs .. I took tabs n morph and I fell asleep , I opened my eyes and she was stood in doorway, debating to go in bed or use my other sofa she had my furry blanket n pillow hiding her legs I thought she was a bloody ghost..I am surprised I didn't have an attack. Bless she has a heart of gold and where as some friend dwindle away when yr ill she has stuck around..I laugh at you and you sure make me smile. Strange as it seems I feel as if I have known you years..

Sounds so nice to renew yr vows, how beautiful is that..Flipflops and ditzy dress whatever.I think its soooooooo romantic...Let me know all about it I sincerely hope all goes well for you .flipflps whatever you will look beautiful.....
