    Lenny, you've arrived at the right place. Posters here, like myself, are also for the mostpart dealing with medical issues. Keep up the fight and know that others will be here for you.

      Leonard,

      Many of us inspire each other to be and do more even though COPD has us in it's grip. My activity is limited to very short periods with longer periods of rest to catch my breath back. My life would be easier if I were allowed access to an O2 supply. Unfortunately my oxygen levels are to high for my Dr. to write the prescription. Arbetitury rules that make me and others suffer needlessly just make lives harder than they need be.

      Do the best you can Leonard and have a Happy Christmas.

      Happy 2019,

      I too like to take in fresh air on a good weather day. Yet I admit that the effort of showering and being presentable in public is too often an exhausting ordeal. It requires much self discipline to push myself to do it. It is so much easier to just be a hermit in my home. Life is so different than it was even 5 years ago.

      Today I shall take in some fresh air, how about you?

      sorry to know that its such an ordeal i am very lucky as i live on top of a hill and an open field so the air can be quit good in the back garden as long as there are no one having barbie in Sommer that is. the disadvantage of living here is i get all weather so when others dont have centrel heating on i have it on best of luck

      Hi Larry.

      I too find it exhausting to take a bath and I'm now trying to pluck up courage to take a shower for the first time as we speak. I even have a shower seat but I'm scared of the effects of the steam. How pathetic is that? I often have an overwhelming of "can't be bothered" and it's not nice. But I'm happy being a recluse in my own home so I suppose I should be grateful for that!
