Hi guys and gals... looking to create a discussion with some of you to better understand us and our conditions. 

When were you diagnosed with COPD and how long have you had it for? What types of treatments or things have you done to improve you "life" and "function" since the diagnosis?

Hi to the both of you. I have been diagnosed with COPD for going on 6 years. My main treatments have been quitting smoking and changing my lifestyle and diet to eating healthier and doing moderate exercise 4 days, at least a week, going outside and enjoying life - lowering my stress.

I would love to continue this communication.
