Karyee, I know it's easier said than done when telling someone not to worry. Been there, done that myself. When I first got diagnosed with copd in the Fall of 2016, I had pretty bad panic attacks. As time went by, I've accepted it & that's a big help in and of itself. I started thinking that I'll do my best & God will do the rest. Keep trusting Him. I hope you're not smoking...if so, it's important to quit. Also drink plenty of water & walk daily. You can do this. Remember, one day at a time. Terri

Hi Karyee,

I know is is impossible to not worry, just try not to worry too much. COPD is manageable, and as for that 7 mm spot on your lung, it is most likely nothing to worry about. If it turns out that is is something, it is still small and manageable.

Keep in touch, let us know how you are doing.
