Hi Florence 72! Nice to meet you 😊 I turned 60 in Dec I have copd emphysema, afib, glaucoma and cataracts. I also use oxygen, have for a long time. Good and bad days are the nature of the beast. I'm having an in between day today.
I'll pray for you to have good days more often.nice to meet you also.
Thank you so much for your kind words!💗 I hope you have many good days as well.
We can be there to support each other. I will be 80 in a few days. I find going to pulmonary rehab helps me keep going with more endurance and strength. Yes I am on oxygen 24/7 almost as year now. Was on it at night and at rehab for years before that. May you encounter things that make you smile every day. Life goes on.
Thank you for inspiring me as well as others.i see my Pulmonologist soon and am positive he'll recommend Pulmonary Rehab for me too.
Thank you and back at you Florence. Recovering from a COPD flare up and doing ok. Also hoping you are doing well.

Woll we be alive for the cure lol.I hope you are well and in good spirits.God bless and breathe easy.
Hi I'm also a ,72 yr old female.im able to go with our oxygen if I m not our with high humidity or feeling stressed.i have,2 concentrators up stairs and down plus small tanks when I'm shopping or at the docs. I f I use my pickle and deep breathing exercises it helps my need for less oxygen.
please tell me what is a pickle?
Okay.they have several shaped devices now, but approximately 15 yrs ago I was given this green colored device, narrow on top, but spread out more towards the bottom. They told me to breathe into it and it should rattle out pheghm caught between the crevices in my lungs .I do this 5 times each interval approximately 3 times a day . My last hospitalization I saw my roommate using one shaped like a hormonica, but think they all serve the same purpose when breathing into them
