I have a few other ailments so I hang out in other forums. I wish there was a COPD forum as I keep asking my doctor questions and he says to me well you quit smoking that must be helping you. I know there are places he could refer me to and tests to see hoe advanced this is.
Yes, it’s such a shame there’s no forum for COPD….
I’ve finally given up asking for/suggesting one, and I know some of my friends and our local support group have drifted away from this site because of this.
I can only presume that COPD doesn’t have the ’kudos’ of other afflictions, which is very strange, given the figures of sufferers worldwide.
Mine is partially due to asbestos and perhaps there’s reluctance to acknowledge the condition due to litigation possibilities. Political hot potato?
I do still drop in here from time to time, but have been spending more time elsewhere in Tinterweb...
You do seem to have an impressive set of ailments Rose..
I’m on Spiriva, saline via nebuliser, anti-cholesterol.. blah ..Blah…
And like you; my doctor didn’t really care at all. In fact, I left the practice, giving my reasons and now have an excellent, sympathetic GP in the same village.
He was surprised to discover that almost all my meds were wrongly prescribed, so pretty smart move on my part.
I must endeavour to contract a more exciting affliction…lol.
Anyway Rose, You take care, look after yourself and take each day as it comes.
