Have a fab day - onwards and upwards!! I am convinced that if my husband had been more active and walked as I nagged him - he would have been able to cope much better. I was just reading an american article where they are looking at prescribing exercise for a whole host of illnesses! Take good care and the very best of luck, TAD xxx

had a really busy day (for me ) compared to how i have been since diagnosis (kinda sat around alot since giving up) .... and i'm coughing more than before is this normal ????

its not unusual to cough more when being active after inaction, but if it doesnt settle soon best you see about it, just in case it means something is amiss ! Happy to hear that you are positive again keep it going its the only way to go, the other way is not an option...take care love roo-roo xx
