Thought today was friday the 13th

Last night my ex came for tea we got on ever so well and I felt a glimmer of hope that she would be there for me but this morning she admitted she was not at work but meeting her new partner at the farm I do feel empty but also glad but I have enough on my plate but its ironic that the only friends I have are within these pages and mere photos in front of me of a son that I will have to now apply for access to see, no family , no friends was this the way it was supposed to be ending I dont know but my dear friend and adorted sister lynda has phoned regular today she worries bless her

  • hi reggie

    i am copd with emphysema and have heart probs 62 and live in spain for the last 15 years.

    i am also a recovering alcoholic and have not drank alcohol for 21 years

    you have situations in your life that are making you feel lonely and sad . believe me a drink will not make any of it better

    lots of support and advice on this site and its good advice to make friends with the people at breathe easy group

    my lovely brother of 58 years old is fighting at the end of his time with copd pulmonary fibrosis ,cardiac hypertension and emphysema .He is so brave.

    i do hope that life smiles on you soon and that you can see and feel it .

  • Thankyou your kind words of support are taken on board and drink no a one off yesterday it made the problem worse because I hardly drink I do also hope life improves for you too

    Regards brian

  • Hi Reggie.

    I have COPD, too, and thankfully I now have a really supportive husband (who I met several years AFTER I was diagnosed). However, when I told my previous husband that I had ovarian cancer (before the COPD), he stopped talking to me. I got the appointment through for my op and he said he'd take me. I thought 'great, maybe he's got used to the idea and things will be ok' - he took me to the hospital, let me out of the van, said 'see you' and left! That was it. I had 4 children to look after as well. I'm not saying this in a poor-me way, I just thought I'd let you know that there IS life out there after diagnosis and rubbish partners! Take care of yourself, Reggie, alcohol is only a very temporary 'solution' and can cause it's own problems.

    Lots of people on here to talk to, even if for the time being, they are only virtual shoulders to cry on. It all helps, honestly.

    Spritz ?

  • Through tearful eyes thank you you and your story have given me a ellement of hope I do hope sincerely that all goes as best as possible for you thank you

    regards brian

  • Like I said, not 'poor me' - happier than I have been for years, despite the COPD !
