I'm here

I've been working quite a lot and now have my sister visiting, so I haven't got on here much, and might not for a few days.

I hope you are all as well as you can be.

On Thursday I travelled to Bristol working and my breathing was not good. I think it was partly because I was getting tense as I couldn't find the building where I was supposed to be. Friday I was in Telford and fine! Could even manage a heavy briefcase and a flight of stairs. It's weird how different 2 days can be.

Do others find this?

On another note, it's great to see quite a few new people on here. However, some seem to be missing. I can't think of them all but Rose, Mrs Shimmy etc. I hope all are well and just busy. (I hope you're good too Gordon) xx

Hi Lynne,

I hope you have a great time with your sister and don't end up suffering like you did on Thursday. I'm a newbie on here and have found everyone to be really friendly, helpful and informative.

Regards, Fatboy


Hope you are having some fun this weekend with your sister and you stay well and warm! it could be the weather that effects our day-to-day,the change in high and low pressure seems to make a big difference.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend! :) x


Good to hear from you Lynne, think we are all busy at this time of year. I can't wait for the crocus to appear and snowdrops. Take care Lizzie x


Hi Lynne, it is a very busy time of year at the moment but I hope you stay well. It is so cold and our little grandson has been unwell, just one cold after another. I get a bit worried as his dad has asthma which is not good. Grandson is only coming up for 6 months but has been checked over by the GP and has not got a chest infection. Phew! Dare I say it, but Pete is doing quite well so far! Hope I haven't jinxed him! Take care everyone and wrap up warm. Thinking of you all. xxxxx


Hi Lynne hope you're back to your positive self by now. I know what you mean about breathing difficulties sometimes and not others. Good you are managing your work and having your family round and I hope this is just an isolated incident. Pretty sure it was as this happens to me (breathlessness) on a daily basis when I'm trying to get from a to b and worryingly haven't been able to speak on the phone or socialise with even my close family just in case they notice this is worsening - silly because I am of an age when it could be put down to old age and although some of them are a distance away, they are understanding people. You are far from that (the old age syndrome I mean) so try to forget it and enjoy the festive season x


Hi Lynne, You have been busy!! Flights of stairs and a suitcase! My husband can have really bad days for absolutely no reason but I have noticed that stress can really affect his breathing. We have stopped flying for that reason - the stress of getting to the airport on time, and all the other stresses when you get there! So glad you are having good days. You are right Lavendar1 - it could be also we are all getting a bit older!! Hope you continue to be well and busy! Enjoy Christmas. TAD xx
