Hello, I Have COPD

I am a 58 year old female from Northern Maine. I was diagnosed with COPD and stress-induced asthma a year and a half ago. I have, by the way, read AND AGREE with the site rules. I am a shy and nervous person so I can only tell more as I get to know my way around and my fellow warriors better. Thank you!

    Hi SillyBoo. What a wonderful name!

    I’m glad you were able to overcome and join us here. Looking it’s been almost a few weeks past, but hopefully you do come and join us more often!

    There is so much information on these sites, and very good! There is much here for COPD and for your asthma articles. Also, there are forums and comments on each of our pages, that you are able to participate in. I think you will fit right in.

    Know that you aren’t alone!

    Hi SillyBoo – you and I have exchanged ideas already so I would say you’re already getting yourself acclimated.
    Our online community is a good one with many varied and diverse members who participated frequently. I’m sure you’ll find that you fit right in!

    You may not be aware that we also have an asthma website. You can access it here:
