      Checking in with everyone I’m praying every one is having a good day I’m am so great full for being able to walk now 4 miles a day No breathing problems Today it’s cool and I’m so happy about that Im sitting on my beautiful deck with my much loved dog Opie It’s been difficult getting out because the heat and humidity has been terrible Im doing so good considering I’ve been diagnosed with stage 4 COBD Im doing everything in my power to stay well When I was told in April of this this year that I have COPD I cried all the time Couldn’t sleep Then I realized that I was grieving over something I couldn’t change Once I got a handle on it and Said thank you God I’m not Dead yet My feelings have changed I know in the future things will change But for now I’m going to live my best life as long as god Grants me the Grace I’m so mad at myself for ever picking up a cigarette But what’s done is done How ever no more cigarettes now. I hate what they do to us Praying for everyone

      When the humidity is high , I don’t go outside at all . Keep cool under the a/c . Try resting more . Keep your a/c filters changed once a month like clockwork. Beware of cleaning chemicals or air fresheners. Also candles .

      aside from staying as active as possible, make sure you take your meds, use your inhalers, etc like clockwork. maybe also be open to the idea of palliative care (which is not the same thing as hospice care) and be willing to take suggestions from your doctor about new or experimental meds/treatments
