Hi, I was diagnosed with COPD 3 years ago. I’m 44, smoked most of my life. I gave up for a bit when I got my diagnosis then started again as life’s stresses got on to of me 🙄
I’ve just given up again (now done 7 weeks) as my chest was def getting worse.
I’m quite young to be diagnosed, my docs acknowledge that. Also I need no drugs or inhalers. I was starting to as a smoker but now not at all. I never get out of breath walking. I have an 8 year old autistic son who is energetic and challenging! I’m never out of breath playing. I have googled lots on mild copd but nothing really answers my questions! Which is why do I have copd when need no treatment? I’m kind of thinking it’s a blessing as I’ve been sent a message to quit smoking and live for my child who really needs me but I’m still struggling to understand my diagnosis and wondered if anyone has any advice?
Thank you 😊 xx
