  • hi hun

    i get like that all the time ive just posted an sos for tips on getting my energy up.......

    are you feeling drowsy with it or showing any other may need a chat with your doc we tend to blame our condition for everything but there could be other things going on

  • So sorry Jimmy you are having a rough trot at the mo I know it hard to believe the fact that your muscles are working overtime plus you are not getting the oxygen sats in your body all this makes any one tired. Are you on home oxygen yet? if not might be worth mentioning it to your doctor it just might add to the quality of life. Just hang in there and do the best you can.

  • HI I have severe COPD I am on home oxygen 3ltr Ifeel so much better on it, can do all my house work etc

    Reading this site I heard Scottsh Heather Honey was good for our condition,after try it I have more energy sleeping well .Tesco has it £5.69 Hope this helps

  • Are you less breathless on oxygen?

  • yes and I have more energy I thinks honey helps as well . Hope you feel better soon.

  • Thanks. A little better. Think I may need oxygen. X

  • Dear Jimmy good to hear from you I have been wondering what you are up to. Sorry to hear that you had to be in hospital for such a long time but good to hear that you are being looked after and now starting to feel better. Well done! Remember to look after yourself and take it easy initially. Take it one step at a time: your body now needs rest to recover. Maybe think about making a new post so that it will be easier to notice. Best wishesxx
