Hello joined here some days ago and wanted to say Hello to all πŸ˜‰

I've been diagnosed with COPD & Asthma in 2007 and have my ups and downs. Like everyone else who has this illness. So would be nice to hear what other people are out there to share experiences to cope with it.

Hi and welcome :)

I don't think ever cope just try manage best you can with limitations of condition symptoms have.

Am having time off it myself SO hope my stuff settles down.

Anyway look forward to reading your future post

Yup up and downs, sometimes is not easy to cope with short breath and even worse when you have a cold, take ages to get it away. But knock Knock, I've been good this year only 2 infections and good it good under control 😊
