Dating And Relationships. Is There A COPD Dating Web Site Out There? (Kidding About The Web Site :)that.)

Here's a subject I have not seen yet...Dating. Do you, and how do you explain to someone your condition? Has anyone been in a relationship after being on O2?

50' Nasal Cannula Tubes

50' Nasal Cannula Tubes

Where can I get 50' nasal cannulas? I just bought my home concentrator from Inogen. As opposed to renting one from a company, even w/ insurance, it was too costly so buying my own pays for itself! They supplied some 25' tubings but I need 50'. Have seen on-line a case of 10 for $60. Anyone know of any cheaper?? Thanks!

Relationships

Relationships

I've noticed aside from my husband bailing 5years ago (stating he didn't want take care of me anymore and listing things we used to do that I no longer can). But also other close friends and family members.
If they cared, it would seem like they'd want to stay closer. But with some, it seems they're pushing me away. I'm still the same person they once cared about, so what's up with that?
I'm pretty isolated now, and just wondered if anyone else has gin through this.

If I Don't Give Up Smoking What Is My Life Span Likely To Be And Is Panic Attacks Common In People With Emphysema?

I am finding it difficult to give up smoking due to the stress I live with on a weekly basis. And I started having panic attacks due to the added stress just before I found out I had emphysema

I fail to see how anyone could handle 2 or 3 packs a day. I was at 24 cigarettes a day & I would get dizzy, nauseated, & sometimes even actually puking. I know it was nicotine poisoning. So even… read more

Did You Have Problems Understanding The Site.

Did You Have Problems Understanding The Site.

When you first started on this site did you have trouble understanding it? What was the hardest thing? Like how to do things like post, get intouch with someone pacific, or to go on someone elses page? There are a lot of new members that are having a hard time. We lose alot of members because of this. Do you have any suggestions on what we can do to help new members. My suggestion is that everyone who welcomes a new member to give a crash course on how to do things. What are your thoughts?
