I've had COPD for about 20 years but cannot remember a winter flu/virus season like this one. It seems like everyone around has some respiratory problem. I found myself doing most holiday shopping online and going out in public as carefully as I could. Missed seeing friends since we were all trying not to share germs. I've had flu and pneumonia shots but seem to be struggling with a lot of congestion and coughing. Saw my doctor today. She put me on meds (again) and told me to be very careful. If things got worse to go to the ER. However, she said both the hospitals she belongs to are full. She said it seems like it isn't letting up.
I would love to hear/share ideas for surviving this season.
