I'm feeling better after struggling with my COPD over the last few days. I have been on myLot intermittently but kept giving up due to breathlessness. I did read some marvelous discussions about the eclipse in the USA yesterday and saw pictures of it on the UK news. I hope those mylotters who were able to see it first hand enjoyed it. More catch up needed as I've loads of notifications to deal with. hope you are all good.

@Gillygirl I've got the Albuterol Inhaler; which works really well.

@nanette64 I think that's the same as Ventolin.

@Gillygirl ProAir HFA is what's on the box. Probably the same as the Ventolin though. I won't do the Spiriva. Tried it once and because it's made of powder, it was sticking to my teeth, mouth and gums even though I rinsed my mouth after inhalation. I thought if it was that gummy what's it doing to my lungs.

@Gillygirl Did you ever get your postcard? I mailed it quite some time ago. Postcards are notoriously slow!

@Jeanniemaries I'll send you a PM, yes I did receive the card thanks. I did mentioned it when I commented on one of your posts. I have had some postcards of my village on order as I prefer to send those rather than London scenes. I've received them now so will be in the mail shortly.

Thank you. Yes I wasn't in the path of the eclipse. There won't be one in the UK until 2090 but alas I won't be around then.

This is going so slow Gill I could almost stop for the day. I could not write a thing on here this afternoon. My guess is that there is a lot of downloading going on from the Emule Glad you are feeling better now. Facebook has been dreadful to be on also pages sticking all over the place.

My clients with breathing issues had problems this past month due to the humidity and pollen. Those fortunate to have AC stayed indoors. Take it easy lady. Hope things are better now for you.

We didn't have totality here in Wisconsin, but I was able to see it cover a portion of the sun and it was fantastic. I took pictures of it from my TV as it went across the country. I'm glad you're feeling better and sorry about the COPD causing you problems.

I am good. Tony has COPD and he thought shortness of breath was his heart because of AFIB but the doctor gave him new meds yesterday "Anoro" and its amazing he said he can breathe now and his heart has not fluttered or has the rate went up since he has been on it 2 days.
