I am 85 male .
I am an 85 year old male and just found out that the reason i have been gradually getting weaker is the dreaded COPD. I think it was because I was a carer for my darling wife who I lost in May last year involved a lot of tele watching and inactivity when I was a fairly active person and up till then put gradual decline down to old age and was at least as good as my friends. As you can imagine I am truly lost without her. We had a wonderful life together and we both recognised right up to the end how lucky we were to have gone for it togethet. I am so sorry that you all seem to be so young I hope that my experience helps yoy and that I can slow down my rapid decline by following some of yours
