Do you ever think how lucky we are to have been born in this time with all the medical advances and treatments? I thought about this at the hospital the other day when Puff went, how clever it all is that here are these diagnostic tools, inhalers, antibiotics, etc
I also have a serious illness and just like COPD sufferers, sometimes feel a little depressed about it, but I find it interesting to consider what life must have been like for sufferers of the same illness even just fifty years ago, not as good as how my illness is managed, I am sure.
My faher's sister died aged five in the 1920's of what appears to be the same illness, of course there were no diagnostic tests back then.
I makes me wonder what medical breakthroughs and new treatments there could be in the near future, and I find that a positive and comforting thought.
