"Well, I am living proof that you can live with it a long time. Everybody is different, but I've lived with it and managed it and I'm still here. It's not all doom and gloom, it really isn't." Sidney, 69.

“And it’s absolutely fantastic, the difference it’s made to me. It is a nuisance, the nebuliser, yes. But, my quality of life has changed … When it was recommended I use it and I will find the benefits of it, I was all doom and gloom…I was shocked, I was in horror about it. But it was because of ignorance, I thought that was the end, but it hasn’t been. You know it’s a pain, it takes an hour of your day up. But you are gaining the benefits.” Mavis, 62
