Hi, I get the impression most here diagnosed with copd have emphysema and not bronchitis. Would be grateful to hear from anybody who is more bronchitic. I have recently been diagnosed with copd, and am afraid I have hit a wall of anxiety and depression since diagnosis (diagnosis on top of other difficult circumstances), worrying about my children as this progresses. I appear to have either the chronic bronchitis or asthmatic bronchitis version, and at the moment am in great pain from inflammation in the lungs. Is this usual? Do I have to live with this every day from now on? Should I be on oral steroids? Please help, sleep is not happening, this presumably not helping the anxiety and depression.
