My Health Deteriorates as Evidenced by my Coughing Fits--

Old news, isn't it?
COPD isn't pleasant.  Emphysema, by any other name, is a waste of time.  There's no cure for it.

Over the past year, I've struggled with COPD.  Every coughing jag caused a deterioration in my breathing.  Every time I coughed, I didn't know whether the cough would subside, or would continue into a harsher reality.  In several cases, it did the latter.

Had another one, just a week ago.  Now I find I can barely walk, even with my portable oxygen concentrator pumping fresh air into my mouth.

It really is a downward slide, friends. 

Haven't really seen any other comments from some of you that have said you have the same problem.  Maybe yours hasn't proceeded to the point mine has.

I don't spend as much time on the forum anymore, either.  Tires me out enough so I have to stop and rest.  Luckily I still sleep well, although I sure don't feel rested when I get up.
Morning Coffee still tastes great, though.

So how are the rest of you guys doing?

   I've had COPD since '98.. It is a slippery slope.. 50 years of smoking did me..
   I quit 18 out of the last 20 years.. 13 years in a row now.

Good on you, Wayne!  Quitting smoking was the worst damned challenge of my life.  Quitting a habit that caused me to reach for a butt every 20-25 minutes, all day long, almost drove me nuts!  I must have been a bear to be around, but I was single when I quit. 
I quit when I was 54 and I'm 89 now.  (Too lazy to do the math!  Wink )  Smoked for 42 years.

Sounds like you're going to make 90 with no problem!
I'm trying for that, anyway.  Huff, puff!
