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.
"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."
