I am a 69 yrs old diagnosed with COPD, asthma, and emphysema in 1992. I smoked 2 packs of cigarettes a day until I was in my 40's. I also have scoliosis. I am on oxygen 24/7 for about 2 years. My biggest complaint is carrying these tanks or portable concentrators around they are heavy. I was very active and now I retired and I feel limited in going out. I shouldn't complain it could be worse but sometimes it's good to vent. Thanks for listening.
