New to group

Hey am new to the group. Was diagnosed with severe COPD 2 years ago. On oxygen full time now. Just trying to figure out how everyone deals with different problems.

  1. Welcome to the site! COPD can be a frustrating journey when you're not sure how to deal with the various difficulties that come up. But, you've come to the right place. Please let us know what specific questions you need answered and we'll do our best to help.
    When did you start on oxygen full time? For a few good tidbits regarding oxygen, here's an article I really enjoyed and thought you'd find it helpful. https://copd.net/living/oxygen-check
    At the end of most articles are few tags for "more on this subject". It's a great way to lead you down the road of finding more information about a subject, even when you don't always know what to search for.
    Take care.

    1. I'm glad you found this site. Everyone's journey is a bit different. What do you consider to be your biggest struggle right now? April - COPD.net Team

      1. I went to Cardiac Rehab then 2 months later was diagnosed Ewing COPD STAGE 4 went to rehab but it was really hard. My wife walks with me once or twice a week at the track. Yes I use my O2 and take 3 breaks but it’s better to exercise a little Love. Bruzzi

        1. Thank you so much for sharing that! I'm so glad to hear you can still enjoy walks on the track with your wife 😀 Wishing you a wonderful day! - John M. (COPD.net Team)


        2. Hi milton (Bruzzi), and thanks for joining in the conversation here. I see my colleague, , has already lent his own personal support just a few minutes ago. Like him, I am appreciative of you sharing your story here with the community.
          You do make a good point - with this condition, it is always better if one can remain active on a regular basis. Keep up the good work!
