Hello everyone

Hi everyone, I would like very much to join to you on this board. I live in Ireland and we don't have an online community like this. It's brilliant that you can talk to others who have the same condition as yourself. Unfortunately I have an autoimmune illness as well as COPD. I sometimes find it difficult to manage the two.

I'm looking forward to geting to know you all.

  • Hello copdber, welcome to the site. I look forward to getting to know you better.

  • Hi copder glad to 'meet' you if you've been reading through the blogs you'll find a mine of information and there's a very helpful BLF telephone line. I'm from Scotland and like yourselves do not have a community forum -must admit when I discovered all the nice people on here though I didn't look much further

  • Hello copder, welcome. I am sure you will find this site a great place to talk and find information. There are always people around to answer questions etc. Take care :0)

  • Welcome here.

    There are COPD networks in Ireland, check with BLF helpline for breathe easy groups and I believe there is a copd forum based in Ireland, but you may need to do a web search for that, or you may be able to access it through facebook.

    Either way everyone is welcome here.

    In addition you may also be able to access a dedicated autoimmune forum or group on unlocked also.

  • Welcome, there's always someone here to give advice or just listen. Hope you enjoy our site xx

  • Hello and welcome copder,

    We may not all have the same illnesses the one thing we have in common is the ability to offer help and advice that we have picked up along the way. As it's been said in the posts above there's always someone around who'll help with your queries.

    Take care
