I also started to go swimming again I met a nice group of people and we go out once a month. The other thing people don't like talking about is depression but sadly depression goes hand in hand with COPD

Hello Missyann . I am sorry you aren't doing so well right now. It is frightening when they don't know what's causing your numbers to drop. I really hope they will keep digging until they find out what's going on.

Please do come here often and let us know how you are getting on. Thinking of you.

Cas xx 🍀

missyan,you need to try and involve your friends with your recovery,Friends have a tendency to disappear either because they don,t understand your condition or they don,i know how to handle it.if neccassary get a wheelchair or some ambulatory oxygen and ask them to help you do the things you used to do together if its going out for a walk,going to the pub,shopping ,cinema whatever rocks your boat.show them the real you agin and it will aslo help when you feel anxious or depressed.Do not try to handle everything on your own as i know from recent experience thats a hard road to travel.Always remeber you have your friends here if you are feeling low.Breathe easy my dear.Mike
