  • "Hello Paddy.

    It is so nice hearing that you not only learnt a lot from your course, but that you enjoyed it too, was your course the pulmonary rehab 6 week course. I was only able to attend my for 5 visit's due to not being well enough. but thankfully my Dr as arranged another 6 week course for me which I am looking forward to. I living alone have found my illness a little daunting, but finding a whole new world and family on here as made it so rewarding and far less lonely. I consider myself so lucky to have found a family I feel close too. I hope that you find it as rewarding as I do..... good luck Paddy with your progress...Megan.."

  • Hi Paddy,glad you enjoyed the course.I could be wrong,but I don't think it was the rehab course that you did.

    I have a feeling,it was one about living with a chronic condition,I did this a couple of years ago,it was wonderful,a couple of us had Copd,but there were many different conditions,people were having to live with,& it was a real eye opener.

    Wishing you well,Paddy, xx

  • That right I have done the rehab course just yet.yes that the eye you do get your eyes open to what other people have look at your self it not to bad. Wishing you well and happens wendells

  • Paddy, Can you tell us what your condition is, please? And the course, was this Pulmonary Rehabilitation?

    If it is that's brilliant. If you can do exercises at home, outdoors, at the gym, in the garden, that's even better.

    I go 3 times a week to the gym and my consultant whom I've seen today told me that I looked transformed!

  • That ok that you can ask my conditions are bronchiectasis osteoporosis asthma anxiety depression. No it was the pulmonary rehabilitation course just yet thank about that one talking over with my doctor I would like to know a bit more about if you can help understand what about if you won't mind please .it was a course called self management of long term health conditions.yes do exercise at home my uncle got horse to see be out with them when I can.

  • thank you so much Roo-roo for you comment it has made my day. thank you for being a part of my community to hope to talk to you again soon all the best maire.

  • The rehab course taught me to use my inhalers properly (discovered I hadn't been) , learned about medications, very gentle exercise, about lung diseases, about eating well, all sorts of things like that. The team that ran the course were great and very very helpful and upbeat.I got such a lot out of it, even though I am not very good at the exercise bit! :x

  • Thank you Louisiana for getting back to me give me so mean answer to my question that i have just go run with it what they tell but this time i like to have all the answer before i would go with it thank again. same here with the exercise bit that would put me off but not this time.
