Hi all haven't posted in ages but have been following posts. Seriously fed up scared depressed and have been having a lot of suicidal thoughts which I know is selfish and pathetic of me cuz I know there's a lot worse than me. My life has I knew it has ended and trying to adjust to all this is so hard. Every time I go to lung doctor I get told something else is wrong with me. I'm doing everything they are telling me but I'm still struggling so much. Ive gave up work due to my unreliability and working for a charity I felt guilty. I was first diagnosed with copd four years since then I've now been told I've bronchiectasis emphysema fluid in Base of lungs high pressure in lungs moderate heart damage n a few other things are being investigated. I've even had to get an hiv test due to my immune system it was negative. I just feel like I'm such a burden to my children who at present do everything for me I'm going to counselling but it's not helping much at present. I'm on my third course of antibiotics and second course of steroids pain In lungs n in the upper part of my trachea excruciating. Nothing helping I just don't know what else to do I'm taking vitamin a c n d also a mushroom based vitamin that I can't spell it's something like cordyceps. Ive really had enough of feeling ill no energy and nothing helping please give me some advice is there help for me or am I on my way out sorry for the long post and I'm thanking everyone who replies in advance. This has probably been one of the hardest things I've had to write but I can't continue like this I'm so unhappy and negative the complete opposite to what I was xo
