Exercising at 77

Last updated: August 2021

My family is telling me to exercise. I am 77, I am very tired and on a new medicine. I know exercise is important. Also cooking, bathing, driving a car, all the things you do every day, I have trouble with these things. I was told I had COPD about seven years ago. Now I am in stage 4 and have to bathe with oxygen and I am on oxygen 24/7. I have been so active, this is hard to take. My husband passed 6 yrs ago and I took care of him 24/7. I let my health go.
