My COPD journey

I was diagnosed in 2014. I struggle more in summer with pollen pollution and poor air quality. Have many sinus infections. So breathing is a real killer. Also bloat. Man!!!! I can't get rid of it. Starts in am after coffee. I can't even eat. I have lost a lot of weight. 100 Ibs right now... If I lose a lot of sleep I am a zombie for two days. A lot of changes have occurred this past year. Strange smells too. It's like metals somedays and others it's just an off smell hard to describe After quitting smoking man did I smell strange stuff. Guess was all the toxins released in the bloodstream.
