Hi All, especially stage 4s!

Have been on this amazing site for a while, but not too techy! Whilst on the treadmill at P.R. yesterday got chatting to the chap next to me, who turned out to be Puff the Magic Dragon! We had a coffee afterwards and he really pointed me in the right direction, as indeed you all have, So thanks Puff! If we happen to meet next week i'l get him tea though as he was to polite to refuse coffee-which as i found out later he's not a coffee fan! Once again thanks to all for support sympathy help and humour, it has turned my life around. Breathe easy, Thanks and love Sheila Xx

Wow that was a coincidence. I would love to meet any member of this site. Keep up the good work. x

What you could do is to go to a large city hosp. Esp Brompton. Find your way to the Respiratory Clinic. Take a chair and then place your coat on your lap, thus revealing your BLF T - shirt with a HU badge with your name on it.

Almost can't fail to get attention. Either a fellow member or your time will be spent signing up new members ;-) Rib

Hi Sheila ! I did succumb to a coffee in the end followed by a nice lump of coconut cake !

I will take you up on the cuppa next week ! :)

It was a good chat and interesting finding out the differences between us as we are both at Stage 4.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

What nice surprise meeting up with another ' groupie '.

I'd love that to happen, but here in South Linc's it would appear to be highly unlikely.
