Hi, my first post! I am only 56 yrs old diagnosed with persistent severe asthma ,and 1.5 yrs ago mild copd. Now new lung dx of bronchiectesis. I just came home yesterday from hospital with dx copd exasperation. Was there 2 days . guess I did too much at home today because I could not walk 6 ft without labored breathing and total exhaustion. So, I went back to the er just to have them send me home few hrs later.chest x-ray and labs were ok. I hate to think this will now be my life ! I still have a job I'm trying to keep! How do you all do it????
