Hi i`m new here so hello all! .Although I know this is particularly for people with lung problems I felt inclined to speak about just life and living it. Life is hard for some not so for others. When I stop and think about all the things thats happened to me over my 71 years I think Whoa where did that life just go! Anyone else feel like that? I married young and had my first child just 19years old, boy that was a shock to the system as I was shy and not very worldly wise. We also had no money although we both worked, and were forced to live with my mother in law for over 5 years. That put a real strain on our marriage and I cant quite believe we are still together after 52 years. I started smoking after that, it calmed my nerves. How I wish I never had smoked as I did for about 30 years. Thats why I have these lung problems. But in those days smoking was `cool` or so we thought. My mother was a heavy smoker and as I was the sixth child ,a twin I suppose all those fumes were getting into our lungs even before we were born I dont know and I dont blame my mother. She sadly died aged 68years from lung cancer. My father smoked a pipe and I loved the smell of his tobacco, he died age 83years. Apart from all the business of both my husband and I smoking we still managed to stop, me age 47 years after a hysterectomy. My husband smoked for years after me but eventually he also managed to stop. He now has copd. We take our meds and try to stay active, he in his garden and me out walking when I can. Well take care all I will certainly post again and I will be reading your posts, which I havent done as yet ttfn
