September 04, 2008 COPD can be difficult-tiresome-depressing-but

Posted Sep 07 2008 2:05am

Start to care for yourself. With COPD it can be difficult, depressing, tiresome, BUT, it will be rewarding if you learn how to take charge and how to manage the disease by making good choices. Study to learn what they are. roxlyngcd@comcast.netA personal best for me today on the treadmill: 5K (3.1 miles) in 45:02. Five years ago it would have taken well over an hour-closer to 2 hrs...IF I could keep going that far. Starting out I walked less than 20 minutes, which granted, compared to some is a lot. Whatever you do...don't compare to others, but do speak out with pride when you achieve a new record, you deserve to crowe and be praised after working hard to keep moving.
