May I ask as I've been diagnosed at 32 with 60% and usually it would be much older will that mean I will pass a lot younger? Having young children I worry but would rather the truth than be sugar coated or lied too, been afraid to really ask any only doc which as I have said in previous post told me it will continue to worsen and all I can do is slow it down a little by stopping smoking which I done straight away.
I'd like to think I can stop it but I know deepe down I have gotten a lot worse over the last year or so even before I got diagnosed. Lots of infections always heavy steroids and anti biotics no energy and finding the things I used to be able to do really difficult, stairs are an issue never mind trying to walk around the park with my youngest four year old son.
Can't help feeling even though I'm doing everything in my power and taking the steps I can I wont be here in 10 years time, in fact ten years is hopeful
Seems to be progressing really fast, are there types that move more quickly than others? I understand through reading that there are different branches of copd.
Sorry to go on but I don't like talking to my wife about it as I can see she gets upset and to be honest it upsets me so I try to forget about it but that's I,possible for me when I'm the one who struggles. I see the changes even if I try not to show it so when my three kids are in bed and my wife is sleeping it plaugues me
Any answers would be much appreciated even if it's not what I want to hear
I understand everyone on here likes to stay positive but sometimes you have to face the truth of what you feel and the changes you are seeing
Thank you all for time and responses
