Hi everyone! I am new to the group and am glad to be here. I was diagnosed with COPD almost 3-years ago. I'm glad there are others I can talk to about this. I'm on oxygen 24/7, but at rest can go without it for an hour or so sometimes. When I go out, I have small, portable oxygen tanks. I frequently have anxiety attacks when I getting ready to go somewhere, especially if it's somewhere new. I don't like going to unfamiliar places and it makes me feel safer to stay home, except for food shopping and visiting a friend on occasion. Anyone else have anxiety and/or panic attacks on occasion? Thanks for the input.
