  •  I'm another person with COPD (8+ / 0-)

    and am in the "severe" category and am on O2.  I also have a pootie.  I use the Breeze system for cat litter and recommend it if you can afford it.  I recently finished an exercise program run by specialists in pulmonary care.  Now I am on the maintenance program (the program was paid for by Medicare, I will pay $40/month for the rest) and it's just amazing how much better I feel.  Best to you michelewin and to the others with this disease.

      Pulmonary therapy and their exercise program. Medicaid refuses to cover it and I can't afford it. I try to do a bit of my own with Wii-fit, but it seems every time I get into a routine and start to feel better I'm hit by bronchitis or an exacerbation and knocked back again :(. It's really frustrating.
