Hi, I have not been on before today but had a good look over the site yesterday and thought how good it was. I have had COPD for over 20 years I am at stage 3 but no oxygen yet thank goodness. I try not to get stressed over everyday things, if the washing and ironing doesn't get done today its not the end of the world. I attend a pulmonary maintenance class every other week, and try to keep active. I also belong to the local Breathe Easy group. Even though i have had COPD for a long time there is always something new to learn. We recently had an inhaler technique presentation at Breathe Easy and I learned I was not using one of my inhalers correctly, and did not realise the importance of a spacer.
