As some may or may not know my name is Janet I have COPD and I am a widow, live on my own with two cats and my best friend is my lap top
Now the point of this post is I am bloody angry at the criticism from some who think this forum should be a soapbox for serious discussion all the while. I have never worn sack cloth and ashes over my COPD and I don't intend to start to do so now.
There is plenty of advice and help given out on here in various forms specifically from Gordon who is extremely knowledgeable about an enormous amount of things but who also has a sense of humour.
However I have no knowledge at all about benefits/housing etc other than from a totally outsiders view and from my previous employment (I know in some ways I am very lucky) so why would I want to comment on these posts although I read them.
I do however have experience in other areas and life and humour is one of them and I will continue to post about this.
Health advice is always helpful and I have received some great help when I have had a query BUT everyone of us is different for every diagnosis there are a mountain of symptoms and solutions. If I am in any doubt I would contact the BLF helpline or post on the question blog.
Anyway I think I have gone on enough if you disagree with what I have said that is your prerogative after all we have an opinion and this is mine and you have the freedom to disagree we do not need rules to enforce this.
