Louellajack,You deserve a big bear hug! I wanted to thank you for the help with the information you gave me on my forum about COPD. I am breathing a little better and have used your suggestions about breathing in slow and not to panic. If you ever need to talk just send me a post. Hope you feel better soon sweetie you are so young to have COPD. Just know a lot of people of this forum care. If you don't let them know they can't help. I've learned that from a few good friends on here.
Just a quick note to let you know that the Dr.s from the Cleveland Clinic DO NOT answer on this Forum ... you would need to post on the "Expert" Forum to receive answers from them. This is actually a pt. to pt. discussion type Forum although there are those from outside the U.S. who are noted to be Physicians than seem to answer a lot of the questions.
