Thank you Leon for your comment
Hi ajschulte, and thanks for sharing your story with the community. You and your husband seem to have everything covered and under control at this point. I understand it took you about 7 years, but now, you are reaping the benefits of what you both have sown.
I already wrote quite a bit about my story and my wonderful partner and husband, but today I will talk about our changes that made a very big difference in my daily COPD life.
Changes we made

Thank you Allyson, the article was informative.
Hi WillDoe and thanks for posting your comment/shared experience in response to Murt’s comments. We appreciate your input. All the best, Leon (site moderator)
Hi Will, thanks for your question! Thrush can be a common occurrence when taking a regular course of inhaled corticosteroids. This article gives some good tips on treating and preventing thrush: https://copd.net/living/sore-tongue-thrush/ I’m glad you have it under control and hope it stays that way for you! Wishing you a good day! ~Allyson (COPD.net team)
Running low on energy, suddenly, gets to me. (I seem to get blindsided by cold weather and having trouble breathing, too.) But fear of running out of oxygen: I’m in the same boat as you on that one murt!
Thank for the comments
Hi AnneK and thanks for completing the story. Hopefully, as Lyn said, you had a good time. Next time you find yourself in that sort of situation (excess exhaust emissions), you may want to consider wearing a filtration mask of some kind to protect yourself. How does that sound for prevention? Wishing you well, Leon (site moderator)
I saw an interview with these two a few weeks ago. They are genuine and heartfelt. So happy they are in our corner. Thank you for bringing attention to our plight.

Aahhh! I see, annek. Well, I hope you at least had a good time while there. Exhaust emissions can be terrible triggers for so many breathing problems.
I hope you feel better soon!

Culprit is 10 days in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. Combination of altitude and narrow streets with extensive car emissions.
I’m sorry, annek. What do you think is causing it? I hope it improves soon.
