Hello everyone I joined this site about a month ago, I have my condition 13 years now and I dont see any one taking the same amount of meds I take on here. I have spiriva, symbacort 400/12, ventolin inhaler and nebules for nebuliser, montekulast tabs and slo-phyllian capsules. I have no idea what stage im at but my doc said I was mild yet copd nurse said severe. I try to keep myself as active as I can at all times but do suffer depression and arthritis in various parts of my body. Three weeks ago I was with my doctor and when I tokd him I was depressed he said, " what had I to be depressed about when people are losing limbs and dying of cancer?" I left in tears now I dont want to go back to him. I was 56 just a few weeks ago. I don't smoke and have just had a holiday with a friend who does and now I have a chest infection so need antiotics and more than likely prednisolone as well but im afraid to see the doc now. I never was one for going only when I really had to. Is anyobe else on all these meds and have they an inconsiderate doctor as I have.
