Hi i have just found this site today. im on another site also. im 55y and a photographer
I have emphima got told 3 year ago. I was in a car accident in 1985 with lung collapse of 80%..i survived. it was suspected back then i would have copd..ive lived a normal life up until 3y ago..i have a really big struggle with the smokes. i have quit a few times but this time i really have to as my emphysema alligies and now azma have taken hold..im pretty active. denial is a dirty word to me..so i have jumped onboard for support with people who understand were im at..my friend's dont really understand! they try n help me but its not happening to them...they are very active and sometimes I cant keep up.
IM thinking of putting a journal together of my journey as a copd person. I have found we are left to fend for ourself with lack of info from doc and the likes. This is the most scary place to be in terms of 'what do i do now' when will i die how long have i got!
I would like to here everyone's views
