Hello all.

Hi I'm Sue , I was diagnosed with COPD two years ago and had to give up working , finding it difficult to keep positive at times, want to do so much , the mind is willing but the body isn't lol. Hope everyone is keeping as well as can be expected, I've got another chest infection, the 5th this year so far.

Hi Sue and welcome, it is hard to stay positive sometimes but you will get there. I know the the feeling the mind is willing but the body says otherwise! Let's hope you get some respite from these pesky infections for a while. Take care and keep smiling. Xx
