Outside breathing


I took my dog out for his walk which i do most days. I go on a park and do a bit of throwing his ball, this I do till i find the cold hurts my breathing. I then get back on my scooter and take the dog for a round round the park, he likes this he never goes very far away from me. . Then i take him for a casual walk home. I am struggling now as it hurts round the bottom of my ribs. I thought it would have eased of by now but no such luck. So this means no more work for me the house work will have to wait.

Hope you are all keeping warm and easy breathing. XXX

Can you wear a muffler( even a thin one ) around your mouth so you dont take in too much cold air.

You take care cold weather always makes my breathing worse even if I'm indoors

....and me.

I hope the good days are more than the bad. Very frustrating but I do the work when I can these days. Try to keep smiling

Cotton? Hmm, Cotton fiber can be one of the causes of COPD. Is this cotton a good choice?
