How are you today? Now that summer is here, I thought I'd open a discussion for us to talk about COPD in this sunny season!
Do you find that your COPD is worse in the summer months? Does the summer heat, allergens, air polution or humidity aggravate your asthma? What do you do to cope? Do you have any tips for managing triggers in the summer? Feel free to share here!

@Courtney_J I do have a more difficult time in summer with my COPD, I really can't take the heat. It puts a damper on our holidays because I do like to go to someplace sunny with the family. If we go to the seaside I tend to stay in the shade mostly because if I overheat it makes my breathing even worse. Other than that I try to drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
@Courtney_J @fourwinds Same, the heat is just unbearable. I try to stay in the shade as much as possible and I try to check the allergy forcast because the grass pollen in the summer really irritates me.
@fourwinds @philantropist I agree, I have to stay out of the heat too. And doing anything remotely active is out of the question for me when it's hot.
