Struggling but living

I have been battling COPD for about 10 years. I bartended back in the smoking inside days and it has given me this awful disease. I also work for a major transportation company and am around many things that are not great for someone with COPD. I visit my pulmonologist at least twice a year to stay on top of my maintenance. Living with COPD is difficult and I struggle daily but staying on top of your mess can really help with this disease. I also am on a weight loss journey and have lost 30 lbs so far and it has made a tremendous difference for the better. I am grateful that I wake up every day and still have a good life.
