4 years ago, wow. Are you still looking for answers in July 2012? On a personal basis, my situation is totally diff from yours. 78 year old male married to the most wonderful ewiffe in the world for 52 years, but I've had asthma since age 3,which metamorphosed to COPD/EMPHYSEMA now. What we DO have in common is that it seems we're both on a zillion meds including steroidsand both experience mood swings, though it's got to be diff when you're fortunate enough to have a truly loving partner in life. What I'd like to do is set up a blog centered on sharing ways to feel good whenit seems dall the forces in the universe want the opposite. Rightnow I'm under the care of one of our country's leading pulmonologists who agrees withme that DIVERSION is one of the best ways to fight mood swings and, in general,feelingplain lousy because just breathinh\g seems such a chore. As a writer, I find writng about good things, inspirational things,sends those mood swings up rather than down. Each inspirational essay appears in my newsletter, "Candles" (better to light onecandle than curse the darkness) This nl is FREE each month & I offer it to you &any others w/breathing problems on the condition each person is willing to share their ideas w/the rest of us. If you're interested, pleaseeemail me: email@example.com .View Thread
