I went into town today.bumped into a lady I've not seen for a few years.i talk to her on Facebook,but we haven't chatted about health issues.
She was diagnosed with copd,3 years ago.she has 3 nebulisers at home which she uses on a regular basis.the sad thing about it is she is only 49.and a heavy smoker.
I try not to preach when I hear things like that,but my god it is so hard.i just said that if she gave up the fags her quality of life would be far better than it is now.she sounded terrible with her breathing.she gave the excuse we all give when confronted about smoking,(I've got a lot of stress,and need the fags at the moment)
Has numerous other health issues,which may or may not be connected to her copd,and smoking..
I mentioned our discussions on here,told her to take a look,maybe join in if she felt it could help her,but I don't think she will.so sad.
So glad I gave up the evil weed.i wish she would too.
