Sick lungs don’t show!
I may not look sick, but….
I have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (C.O.P.D.)
What is C.O.P.D.? It includes such illnesses as emphysema, chronic
bronchitis, bronchiectasis, and sometimes asthma...
It is primarily characterized by extreme shortness of breath
Living with C.O.P.D. means many things…
Living with C.O.P.D. can mean having to avoid:
* all kinds of strong odors, smoke, flowers, perfumes, cleaning supplies,
paints, solvents, vehicle exhaust, shaving lotion, bath powders, incense,
* excess humidity
* temperature extremes or wind, crowds, molds, and dusty places
because they make me short of breath
Physically……
Living with C.O.P.D. can mean:
* having difficulty walking up stairs or inclines
* not walking very far
* being unable to rush or “being rushed”
* tiring easily- especially if things last too long
* being unable to tolerate tight clothing
* inability to talk for any length of time
Socially…..
Living with C.O.P.D. can mean:
* coughing in public which attracts attention and embarrasses me
* having to use or wear devices or equipment, or take medication
which invites public comment (oxygen, cold weather masks, inhalers)
* being concerned (often excessively) about contact with cold or flu germs
* having my friends make short, pleasant, smoke-less visits
Emotionally….
Living with C.O.P.D. can mean:
* crying easily, angering easily, become frustrated and impatient because I can’t do the things I used to do
* feeling resentful when others tell me, “you don’t LOOK sick”
* being panicky and tense
* being dependent and demanding because it’s frightening when you
can’t breathe
C.O.P.D. effects my family too!
They are effected by:
* adapting to my various physical, emotional, social and environmental
needs and limitations
* leaving many functions earlier than they wish because of me or never
even getting there
* having to check out all of the details in advance and getting places
early
* having to remain calm and reassuring at all times
REMEMBER………….
I may not look sick……….. but….. SICK LUNGS DON’T SHOW!!

C.O.P.D (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a long term debilitating lung condition. I am asking if everyone could put this as their status for 1 hour. Think of someone you know or love who has or had COPD. My hope is that in 2020 more awareness and better treatment will be found. Will you post it for 1 hour? To honour those who have fought or are fighting COPD.💪😷

My Story

I struggle to ‘catch my breath,’ every day. I was diagnosed with COPD at age of 60 and CatchYourBreath60 was born.

I am a female with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), I had 2 Sudden Cardiac Arrests in 2016 I now suffer from Heart Failure.

Uncontrolled shortness of breath lead to heart failure and pulmonary hypertension. I had an Internal Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD) implanted.

It cost me my livelihood and my financial freedom.

Respiratory Rehabilitation gave me my life back. I follow the mantra to Eat Well, Think Positively, Exercise Daily. I am grateful and feel truly blessed for every day that I wake up.

I suffer with severe breathlessness having a condition known as Phrenic Nerve Palsy. The phrenic nerve supplies the signals to the diaphragm. Somewhere the nerve forks into two to supply signals to both left and right side diaphragm muscles. Unfortunately for me the left side has been damaged, possibly by a virus. The decrease in my ability to exchange oxygen in my lungs means that exertion of any kind has a cost. Simple every day needs cause fatigue and pressure on other organs. During these difficult times with the pandemic the need to wear a mask is torture, however with the risk of being infected I cannot afford not to wear a mask.
Hi Barbara, I just read your very interesting 3 part story, is there going to be a 4th?

Hi Barbara, I just want to confirm tonight's meeting, the invite says 7 but your reminder says 8? I'm guessing 7 is correct?
have you seen this; I thought it might be helpful https://www.today.com/health/coronavirus-breathing-technique-may-help-covid-19-patients-breathe-better-t177870?fbclid=IwAR0KpH4- 5xGvU4bCJ5irpfHv1lmuo9KzqFZH-1V_SR-0-f2dMZYxXAAngyE
A little humor for Tea Time! This is my new skill learned during quarantine!
Now is the perfect time to practice meditation!
Just finished this one
Question please. If one person in a home catches the Corona Virus, should the entire home be quarentened together? Also, if one family member has COPD, how do you handle this? This is actually a question from my daughter. Thanks for your input.
Glad to hear you had a good time at Rehab yesterday. Great bunch of people there.
Hello ‘Catch Your Breath 60’. Also Barbara. I do not know if I am a member of your group, or a visitor that was able to make contact recently; so I am asking, if my making contact has automatically given me membership, or whether someone invited me to do so, which I don’t recall! My memory has always been excellent, but that’s just my opinion! Hopefully, that is still the case; unless you Barbara state otherwise! What does the ‘60’ represent in the group’s name? I would like to catch my breath, but it’s too fast for me. What are the rules (if any)? I expect you may reply- no religion, or politics: they are my two most interesting subjects; however, I can readily agree with not mentioning them if they are forbidden. Well, I do not want to take up any more space, so I’ll just say ‘Hope you all can catch your breaths for 2020, and not let them go😍
