i hope some of you remember my posts,dont feel like going through everything again.anyway i somehow went to work today i took a puff of the inhaler before i left out of fear.i stayed as calm as i possibly could and my breathing is fine.i have terrible pain in the middle of my chest.i had it when i thought i had this and when the dr the first time told me i didnt have copd the chest pain went away in 3 days. then when he told me i have it it is back and it really hurts.i wish i could get rid of it do you think this is all from anxeity and panic.if i did not have this i would feel fine .anyway i decided to go for a cat scan it was suggested i go i just want to be 100% sure what i have even though the xray said copd .is not something else,it be terrible if i ended it for the wrong reason.i decided for right now to still be around cause it seems that when i am calm i very rarely have any problems breathing.the dr ,a few people on here,the copd hotline told me exercise eat good which i havent been doing cause of severe stress take excellent care of yourself and you can slow this thing down to a crawl and stay where u are at for your life.a gentleman on here told me he has been mild for 10 years now.this if the cat scan confirms the xray its my only hope . if i go down and really start to struggle for every breath i am done.please dont judge me for this its a promise i made to myself as a young man.when quality is gone its time to leave.it maybe selfish but we are all different and i guess i dont have the courage some people have although i have been thru alot of hell.for all the people who have maintained the level they stared with for years please let me know cause it will keep me alive.
