World COPD Day!
Wednesday, November 16, 2016
November is COPD Month and today is World COPD Day. I was diagnosed with COPD back in 2001. Thank Goodness, I quit smoking that same year. Today, thanks to the medications/inhailers, 24/7 oxygen and pulmonary rehab, I am still active and currently working outside the home full time. Many are not that lucky and suffer each and every day.. COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a dreadful disease that robs your ability to breathe. Sparkpeople has also been a big boost for me as it stresses healthy eating and exercise which is highly recommended by pulmonary therapist throughout the COPD World. I also belong to two teams on Sparkpeople with others who have COPD and/or Asthma. These are some of the reasons why Sparkpeople and all that is offered on this website is so special to my day to day living.
