I am hoping some of you wonderful people here can tell me some stories of how you have lived a long time with COPD. I have two young children that I want to see grow up. I quit smoking as soon as I was told and never plan to smoke again. I just want some positive post that I can look at when I feel down because I made the mistake of heading straight for the internet when I got home from doctors and and looked at some bad stuff. I want to be as positive as I can but I haven't come to terms with it yet. I am so scared. I am hoping some of you can put my crazy mind at ease and help me get into positive thinking.
