Holiday-related COPD Triggers

    Do you have specific holiday-related triggers that aggravate your COPD? Share about them here – and feel free to include how you cope with them!

    Crowds, the stores are packed with shoppers. Not just the crowd, but the overuse of perfumes and aftershave that come with them. Crowds are an anxiety trigger for me and the scents trigger my COPD…two whammies.

    Hi again, PrincessFiona60. Thanks for sharing your own personal triggers around the holiday season. I think you’ll find it’s worth the effort to try to avoid exposure to the crowds (anxiety) and the scents.
    Warm regards,
