Im moderate COPD ex smoker, and know I need to exercise and do try to, but If I do more than the very basics of life, I get a flare of CFS, if I am exercising to point of breathlessness heart races and can go into AF. I also get the fatigue from CFS kicking in and Im unable to build up to increasing. Tried many times over the years.
When cfs settled I can do a few mins walking on rebounder, and 15 mins on my ijoyride, and light home care, but when its acting up I cant do anything at all other than sit around and-or lay down. I also have osteoporosis, arthritis and several other things happening.
At the moment, my small elderly dog has a broken jaw and I have to cook and cut up and hand feed everything to her, because it has a wire screwed to the outside and goes under the tongue, also has a bumper bar under the chin with the big buster collar to protect it all. I live alone and it will take around 6 weeks to heal and get the thing removed, and less than a week in Im spending time in bed when not dealing with the dog or basic care for myself. How on earth do I do exercise like this?
If any of you have experience similarly and found a solution, please let me know
