Hi there. I am sitting here indoors on a beautiful sunny day, having been advised by the media that people with respiratory weaknesses should not be out and about. Tomorrow I have to go up to London, it's unavoidable - what are we people with COPD/Bronchiectasis supposed to do? Now I am anxious about leaving my home the whole of the coming weekend which is dragging me down as I live alone & have no choice if I need to get out to see folk or get shopping. I live in a polluted area and it is in the 'very high' category on the DEFRA map for the weekend. Is it really too dangerous to go out? Do COPD-ers and bronchiecta - ers (oh forget it!!!!) stay indoors until Monday?
