Hi all,
I've been on the forums for a while now but been posting in allergies as there didn't seem to be a forum for COPD ..
Chartreux was kind enough to point me in the direction of you guys so I thought I'd drop in and introduce myself.

Not wishing to repeat myself; you can read my posts in 'allergies' if you wish.

I was dignosed just over a year ago and I'm still trying to come to terms with my condition, having been pretty fit most of my life.
I suppose my work with asbestos,wood dust and building materials finally caught up with me, and smoking obviously didn't help.

Oh well, life is a learning curve and when I attend my local support group, I realise there are many other folk far worse off than myself.

Happy to chat or e-mail anytime as I'm no longer able to work, so I have nothing but time on my hands.

Look after yourselves...

Hi Running, I was looking for COPD as well but I guess it doesn't have a thread of its own yet?? I knew smoking was going to effect my health and I tried for years to quit. I finally succeeded and my Dr says you have COPD. darn no what he says you will have it until you die, treatment stop smoking....duh I did that I just want to breathe a bit better. I think I need a new Dr.
Take care
