What can help me with my breathing besides being on my oxygen all the time

Hello to u. I am not on oxygen all the time but do struggle with my breathing sometimes. The doctor spoke to me about going to Pulmonary rehab, where they teach u all about controlling ur breathing and all the problems that go with the lung disease we have got. Also u do exercises, when I heard the word exercises I thought that is the last thing I want to do when I can’t breathe properly. Well I couldn’t have been more wrong. The exercises really do help and the people who take the classes are very helpful, especially if u need to chat to someone about ur problems or how u feel. It might be worth asking ur doctor. I found it really helpful. Good luck and a Happy New Year to all at ur end. 👍🤓🏋️‍♀️

Yes, and any exercise is good. But, more is better. Sometimes I go a day or three without and my breathing becomes so much more labored. Methinks that nutrition might affect me more now, also. Good luck to and excelsior.
