About me

Hi, I was expected to have COPD 33 years ago, the doctor didn’t explain it, but told me he would give me something to clear up my congestion. So I go all those years smoking on my merry way never realizing what I was facing. I’m 72 now, with stage 2. I’m not on oxygen yet, only nebulizer and inhaler. Yeah, I quit smoking, that or quit breathing. Prayers to all!!!!
