This is the first time I have written on this site. I am a 52 year old female, diagnosed with moderate COPD (FEV 50%) I gave up smoking a couple of weeks after being diagnosed and am proud to say am sticking with it. I dont fully understand the difference between FEV and lung capacity, the nurse has changed my medication last month and I now take Ventolin, Symbercort 400 and Spiriva. Mornings seem to be my worst time, i get tireder as the day goes on by 4pm I am ready for my bed! I still work full time although I must admit it is getting harder and harder as the weeks go by. ( I dont have a physical job but my job is stressful) I get very breathless and can only walk short distances before I have to stop. I am still trying to get my head around this disease and would really appreciate any help or advice and to talk to people in similar situations. Thanks in advance for any advice, C
