I am a 60 yrs old woman found out in 2013 that I have COPD along with other complications. My dad passed in 2013 with lung cancer and my mom passed 2018 with COPD and pulmonary fibrosis.

About me

I am on oxygen at night and inhalers of course breathing treatments. I quit smoking July 12th 2021, not quite a yr. Still having trouble breathing but O2 is normal. My problem is mostly trying to get the air out. It's also hard to get the air in at times but I struggle daily. I am proud I found this group. I am also in a group called myRAteam. It helps alot too. I am looking forward to meeting new people with my same kind of problems that understand. Thank you for letting me share ??
