  • Very good advice. I have COPD and one of my big mistakes is moving too fast and then finding myself in trouble. Thanks .

  • Excellent article, thank you.

  • As this is all new to me I found the article very informative, thank you. 

  • Helpful article Gerald. Lots of good advice. I like  the diet section; the only problem is, like many others,  I have more than one condition. 6 at the last count. I eat lots of salads, fruit & veg, I like these & it's advised for post cancer patients  but the latter certainly irritates my digestive system.  I have to watch fruit cos of mild diabetes and like many older people I have diverticular disease. I just try to keep to a low calorie 1200 calories with low fat, salt & sugar diet. As soon as I regularly eat 1500 cals, I pack on weight very fast. Slow metabolism from Thyroid  & I get more breathless.... it's OK when you can control diet but hospitals & care homes don't go to the trouble. X 

  • Thank you for sharing some good tips in it

  • thanx x

  • This was very interesting and informative.  The only criticism I have is the section on housework where it suggests you clean your windows with a mixture of vinegar and ammonia.  Vinegar in itself is fine but ammonia?  It recommends using a mask because of the ammonia but why use ammonia?  I clean my windows with plain water and 2 E-cloths, one to use damp  and 1 to use dry to polish off dampness.  I sometimes put distilled white vinegar in the water too but I don't really notice any difference.  Ammonia is a very strong chemical and I was quite shocked they suggested this.

  • Very informative, thank you.

  • thank you xxx

  • Thank you for all this information.  I need to try harder! Moi x x x

  • Thankyou Gerald for a very helpful link. I clean my windows with fairy liquid in warm water with a splash if vinegar, sponge on a stick and a scraper and towel- ammonia is too strong for me.  

    Good wishes. 

  • Once again thanks Gerald, my aim is to stay stress and anxiety free as much as possible.  I really enjoyed the article it makes a lot sense.  Love moongirl x

  • Good article Gerald, thanks.
