      Made Pramana

      Made PramanaHello, good morning friends. This morning I went to the field and had a yoga exercise with "Seger Oger Group." I felt sharp pains in my chest and was a little bit distracted. However after thirty minutes and after finished the surya namaskara I feel the mucus and coughed. It felt so great to clear the mucus. Then after the yoga session finished I coughed and release mucus again. I stayed in the field and had some chat with friends there. When I went home I coughed and release mucus again. Coughed three times this morning which is great! Have a good night. I hope the weather will be stable and not so cold.

        Stephanie Williams, RRT

        Stephanie Williams, RRTHow many of you attended the COPD9 conference in 2015?

        We are gearing up for another great conference this summer :)

        I know many of you live near the Chicago area, and we would love to have you come to the COPD10 conference on July 28th and 29th. Please make plans to come. We would love to have you there and meet you in person.
        The conference is truly worth the effort to come.

        4 years ago, I went to COPD8, and was so excited because it was the first conference I had ever been to (and I've been to A LOT) where the patients were not only invited, but were asked to contribute!! I thought that was such an amazing concept. Little did I know then that I would be working with these fine people now, and helping make positive changes in the lives of people with COPD.

        Feel free to reach out to me if you have any quetions about COPD10.
        Registration will open soon :)

        Made Pramana

        Made PramanaI am currently reading a thread on my Bronchiectasis online forum about oxygen therapy. In the past I asked my pulmonologist whether my oxygen should be checked. However he didn't want to and he also mentioned about the dangerous CO2 retainer. I have been diagnosed with bronchiectasis for three years and I never have a six minute walking test. Sometimes my heart beat go up to 120 bpm with 93 saturation. Tomorrow I will meet a new pulmonologist and I would like to have a consultation about this. I hope that she will take into consideration.

        Made PramanaThis morning I went to an event called "Bali Yoga Festival" with my family. I did not take the yoga class in there because I felt a little bit tired. Yesterday I already had a yoga exercise, so today I just went around. I had a delicious meal and had some fun. Well I will doing yoga in this afternoon. Have a nice day everyone. ๐Ÿ˜Š
