I was diagnosed with COPD just over a year ago! I believe I am at Stage 2 at this time! This has certainly impacted my life in so many ways! I am on 2 types of Inhalers and Ox at night! It has really slowed me down! I use to love walking, walked from 3 to 6 miles a day, how I wish I could still do that! I do try to do as much as possible, some days I just can't! Because of the inactivity I have gained weight, depressing!!!
