To my friends at COPD.
I just got done writing a sort of resume' but it didn't seem to get sent. Anyway, here it is again.
I'm a 90 year old male who was diagnosed with COPD - Emphysema, Stage 3, last February. I know, it only took 90 years for my 35 year habit to catch up to me even though I had quit in 1977.
I am divorced and live alone but do have a very dear lady and we do share time together. I have not gotten used to living with COPD but right now my biggest problem is coping with not wanting to eat. My taste buds are gone and I have trouble getting a meal down and I'm losing weight as we speak. I am on inhalers.
I'm a retired aerospace engineer having spent 30 years with the same company. I have three children and 5 g-children. I've lived in Sarasota, Florida for the past 15 years.
If you need more information just ask.
