Is that muscle and bone pain from the Advair? I smoked too much for too many years, but I think a lot of my probs were caused/exaserbated by some heavy abdominal surgery 4 years ago and the meds or whatever.

In any case, I take the whole 9 yards. Advair (2x daily) and Spiriva (1x daily) for the longer term and Combivent every 4 waking hours. Of course, I have Albuterol and a nebulizer for very bad times. Too much sometimes, I think.

anyway, seems like I'm getting worse, but suspect I just need to push myself and exercise/maybe workout. Too sedentary, I'm afreaid.

Why not start walking for exercise?

I read this yesterday. I'm not implying you're depressed or have anxiety, although a chronic diagnosis is no cause for joy. I just thought the excerpt might help.

Mental health providers should prescribe exercise more often for depression, anxiety

"Rather than emphasize the long-term health benefits of an exercise program – which can be difficult to sustain – we urge providers to focus with their patients on the immediate benefits," he says. "After just 25 minutes, your mood improves, you are less stressed, you have more energy – and you'll be motivated to exercise again tomorrow. A bad mood is no longer a barrier to exercise; it is the very reason to exercise."
