My birthday week and this is the best gift I can give myself.
Having COPD & never having smoked is infuriating but...what you gonna do! I have coughed profusely for the past 6-7 years & am having trouble living normal life anymore..I am so distracting, anyone who doesn't know me things I am sick & spreading germs! That is the worst I wish I could wear a sign. Anyway after trying every medication know, nebulizers, inhalers, steroids...you name it. I am now trying a new route.
Holistic and as I said Im trying anything & everything. She wants to try Accupuncture & for me to get off of Whites (carbs, dairy, sugar), and she is putting together some Chinese herbs....all in order to reduce phlegm. Of course the good side of this is that I am, as of yesterday, back to Sparkpeople!!! I can do this....even if it is the holidays...boo hoo. Have 13 to lose to get back to where I lost 50 a year 1/2 ago. Its hard when the only time you don't cough is when sitting still
Made my Cleanse Water this morning...today is my 2nd day. Can't wait to get a week under my belt (figuratively) and see how I do!!! Wish me luck.
