Happy Christmas

Hi everyone.

Hope you have a nice Christmas

Think its going to be a wheezy Christmas for me has i have a mild cold i say mild because i dont feel ill with it and i know i caught it off my wife who i have been watching with her cold with the same symtoms and i know i should take my emergency antibiotics but this is 6 days now and it seems to be clearing just very wheezy in the mornings but that must be the moderate stage COPD i have.

and i like to think i know my own body but then again do we know whats going to happen with this COPD anyway because i had a operation a few months ago ( new hip ) i have stopped walking the treadmill and started swimming 3 times a week and that helps me feel good.

I was diagnosed with COPD 4 years ago and was a bit sceared at first because i made the mistake of looking at bad things on google so stopped the smoking and done excerise and felt fine and thought to myself well .. when are some of these things going to happen like feeling breathless and coughing.

So i think it has been a great help to me with the not smoking and keeping active BUT i must admit this winter i have started to feel more breathless and wheezy in the mornings and thats where my blue top ventoline has and when helps.

Anyway i know our lungs are all act differant with this COPD but chatting to the nice people on this site and the BLF staff has really helped me understand COPD more so would like to wish you all a very nice merry Christmas.
