Im new here (62) and have stage 4 COPD, Emphysema and an assortment of other ailments, nice to see people who can still do things with their COPD, walking, stairs, etc. I have a tough time, this year is the worst.
Good morning world ,I was diagnosed on the 6th of October with COPD. It came as a bit of a shock to be honest and it still is. The first thing I insisted on was an exercise bike. I had all good intentions of the world to jump on it and Get peddling. However I can only do a kilometre of time before my legs start aching and my pulse rate shoots up like a rocket. It’s the most boring thing in the world to do I need some sort of virtual headset so I can imagine that I’m biking through Wales or the Peak District, not looking at all my cats I’ve collected over the years that are really dusty, I know I should do more housework but what’s a bit of dust.🤣
I try to keep as active as I can but I get really tired that I can’t do what are used to do,
Well done on the 8 mins on the treadmill , I’m jealous 👍
Glad I found this forum ,
