I have been diagnosed with copd for ten years, last year i had a bad acerbation,brought on mainly bacause my husband was being treated for bowel cancer and it got rather stressful. I joined a copd rehab programme shortly after my husband died, and i have gained a lot from it .I spent easter in London with my youngest daughter, something i didn't think i would be able to do again.Preston stationhas always been a worry for me, but i find that catering for the disabled has been upgraded since the last time i was there and lifts are available which i didn't know about before.

Hi Tatteka and welcome to the site also, I have learnt so much from the lovely people on this site, they have changed what was a very scary diagnosis into something, that i am sure I can live with for many more happy years. (I remember the perils of Preston station). take care Linda xx

Hi tatteka. I know preston well being a prestonian:) yes.. the station is much better than it was when disabled folk had to go from one end to another and back again. Hope life keeps getting brighter :) x
