The NOTs of COPD, part 2 of 3


Reflections--COPD  As one with COPD, I have accepted it as my life’s long-term not so co-operative friend.

As with many who have COPD one of our biggest challenges is understanding, remembering and sharing what COPD is and what it is not.

In this quick three part series, and CrossDove Writer tackle some of the major ‘COPD is Not’ features of this disease.

  • *** COPD does not mean the end of your life as you know it or the end to good, memorable times. Instead it is more like a side-road which has many bumps but is travelable.
  • *** COPD should not and does not decrease your abilities to appreciate all that life offers. Okay, you may have trouble breathing at times, but if you place, pace and prop yourself as needed, you will still have a lot to offer life and will still be able to get a lot out of what life offers you.
  • *** COPD will eventually most likely be a direct or indirect cause of your death – but having COPD is NOT a death sentence, you still have lots to live for, lots of time to enjoy the beauty in your life and lots of time to make memories for everybody.

Ok, for many these may be just reminders to many, but they are important reminders to keep for those days when the unfriendly side of COPD may be wearing your day down.

Watch closely as Friday and CrossDove Writer will have the final of our short three-part series the needed reminder of ‘the Nots of COPD’.

As always – if you or anyone you know have any symptoms involving lung and breathing functionality, and they linger over and over while disrupting a lifestyle – then please ask questions and get it checked out.

Remember always that without breathing a person is without life itself.

With that I bid to all – smiles, prayers, blessings and steady breathing – Mr. William.
