hi all glad to be among you all I am 45 and just been diagnosed with COPD after having Bronchitis on returning from Egypt lucky enough I had quit smoking while I had Bronchitis 5 weeks ago so after getting the news from the doctor I now have an inhaler and have started eating healthy and hitting the gym shocked at first to hear the news but I am ready to fight this all the way.
