Hi all, been lurking on here for info for a while, have decided that with an increase of depressive symptoms that it might really help to engage with fellow COPD sufferers, hopefully offering my support in some areas may help to help myself..
For a quick idea of my condition, diagnosed in feb earlier this year after difficulty at work, up to 95% damage by volume of right lung, and fev/fev1 of 50%, I have pure emphysema with giant bullae. I am 32 years old, smoker for about 8 ish pack years, quit a while before getting sick. I do a lot to maintain my health but am struggling for emotional support so hope to make some friends online to share positivity with.
all the best, and regards. Oxy
