What does your Dr state is the reason for your inability to work when you suffer from lung disease?

I want to work! However, I have so many illnesses which overlapp, it is difficult to pinpoint which illness is causing my symptons.

I have both restrictive and obstructive lung disease and am on CPAP therapy. I look fine and at the moment can walk (slowly) for miles on the flat however struggle on the slightest gradient. My concentration levels are poor as is cognitive function which unfortately are the skills I need for work.

My doctor struggles with what to write on a sick note often writing a stress related disorder which is not the case.

What does your doctor write?

Do you find getting a doctor's sick difficult to come by?

Administrators, can you please move this question to the lung foundation forum. This is just an exampke of poor cognitive function:-)
