you all are great...yesterday googled the question...just quit smoking for the 100th time but how come i feel worse than when i was smoking?...up popped your website. reading your posts feels like you all are inside my head...thinking the same things that i think. i don't have anyone here at home that i can talk to...so things are pretty tough when you have to go it alone. maybe with your website i won't feel so bad. getting the answers to some of my questions about copd and athsma might help me feel a bit safer and not so scared of all the changes i am going thru. i will keep reading and writing too if that's ok with you all. my dx two years ago was: severe onset of osteoporosis (most of my spinal vertebrae are fractured causing pressure on the spinal chord (stenosis)...and i have lost 3 full inches of height. i saw a pulmonologist then that said i have asthma and a "touch" of copd. what does that mean? i don't understand why drs don't explain things better and give you the info that you need to feel a little better...maybe some hope so you don't go home and want to just lay down and die. i know i'm not supposed to give up and feel that way...but right now i'm not able to get up on me feet an "deal" with all the changes my body is going thru. i'm just so worn out and so tired of feeling lousy. i knew that if you all read my post you would understand. anyone feeling the way i am???? it would be good to know that i am not alone in this battle. i also have feelings of anxiety almost all the time. i don't know why but i think it has to do with the lung problems too. i hate feeling that way. its like i can't control what my body is doing. docs are no help. they don't want to deal with that part of having copd/asthma. so i thought maybe if i share these feelings in a forum/support site i might just feel more hopeful. can anyone relate to this?i really sound "nuts' don't I??? i'm not...i just want a cig so bad right now....its really hard to do all of this stuff alone. guess i will post this and see if you guys can relate>>>>>thx for reading
