i am posting this as i just don't know that to do anymore. i have tried to get some help from every one i can think of from social services to c.a.d just to get past from pillar to post. all i what is to get help to be able to get out from theses 4 walls as its driving me crazy not seeing any body for weeks on end. the only help that i have managed to get is a ambulance to get me to & from hospital appointments. don't get me wrong i am grateful for that. i just feel that i can't / don't want to go on like this. i know it the wrong thing but i have started smoking again hoping it will end things quicker. ( sorry i'm just at the lowest point that i have ever been since being told that i had c.o.p.d ) i have just given up.
