I went to my GP 10 days ago with bronchitis, she prescribed a hefty dose of anti - biotics, which has cleared it. However, when sounding my chest she noticed something wrong. As I suffer with depression and have done for years she printed me out 6 pages about copd and told me to take it home and digest. I did so and on the strength of that am on day 9 as a non smoker. The panic and worry I am now suffering from are unbearable. I don't know how long I am going to live for and spend a lot of time in tears. I am alone, frightened, scared and lost and don't know who to turn to. Oh yes, I am 61 and can still run up and down two flights of stairs. Some support and kind words would be most appreciated. One very frightened lady.
