I don't remember the last time I had a cold, it was years ago. I was diagnosed with COPD about 5 weeks ago and have done a lot of reading since, and have learnt to keep away from people with coughs, colds, sore throats, etc. Can't believe that now I need to be careful that I catch a cold. I've spent most of today sneezing, blowing my nose and wiping tears away from leaky eyes that all the sneezing is causing.
Any advice to get through this as easily as possible and to prevent it from making the COPD worse during this time.
