All there is is hope

50 year smoker, stage 4 COPD, yadi, yadi, you've heard it all before. COPD is a "sorry, but you did it to yourself" stigma. Not true in all cases, I know. So what do we do to keep our spirits up?

Maintaining hope

My hope is my faith. My hope is enjoying my friends and family on a much more personal level. My hope is asking the questions, having conversations that I was afraid to have. We all know where this COPD is leading us, but my hope is to live life until then.
Best of wishes to all of you.
