I only joined recently as I am a carer for my husband who has copd. I asked for advice on how to cope with his condition and motivate him. After receiving a lot of good advice on here things are starting to improve. He ismaking more effort to do things now and seems to be over coming his fear slowly. A big motivation for him, is to be fit enough to drive to see the grandchildren at xmas. One thing we are both doing is stopping smoking this is day 1 and we haven't had a cigarette "yet" we have all the nhs aids so are determined please keep us on the straight and narrow. Bye for now.
