I am divorced, live alone and will be 70 years old in July and I was diagnosed with severe to moderate COPD/emphysema in 2001, but know I have had it much longer than that. I kept myself in denial for many years. I am not taking any COPD medication and haven't for several years. The inhaled steroids made my coughing so severe I would almost pass out. When I refused to take them anymore, my doctor told me I didn't have to come back until I got sick. So, I've been on my own every since. I changed my diet and began taking supplements. I also do the One Minute Cure with Hydrogen Peroxide. This probably is not the answer for everyone, but it works for me. I am better since I went off chemical/prescription drugs. I would like to make friends with people with my kind of condition. I am not a whiner and I refuse to let myself have a bad day. Every day I wake up breathing is a good one
