21.8.07: Post/script: thoughts on a name

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease .... we are temporary residents now in the Kingdom of the Sick, now in the Kingdom of the Well, but often weaving a wobbly path between the two, neither victim nor "supercrip". Some days are bad. Some despair, occasional bliss but mostly a pretty ordinary struggle.

I want to find a different name, a different description to avoid the medical box. C.O.P.D.... Come On People, Dance. A request, an injunction, a denial? Who knows?
