Copd is making life challenging
Hi, my name is tonilc1969. I am a 53 year old lady. I'm here because I have copd which is a lung disease. I am stage 4, which is endstage and my breathing out capacity is only 14%, so what I mean by that is ... you breathe in and breathe out, I can't breathe out as much as a person who can breathe out, my airways aren't good. I am here to do exercising. I hate exercises, but I know I have to do it and I'm the world's worst procrastinator! Because it's hard to breathe and it scares me.
I’m new to the group!
Hope all of you are having a good day today! 😊💟
As the title states… I did NOT believe it when I received the #FNDdiagnosis !
I’m still having trouble grasping my neuros assessment of all my conditions & symptoms!….
Since I’ve been dealing with ALL my NEURO health issues since 2013 & she just met me last year!
Anybody else try to “forget” all their diagnosis ON THE DAILY??!!
— because it’s just too overwhelming & creates anxiety?
I try most days to push myself beyond the EXTREME pain & numerous symptoms & focus on ANYTHING ELSE to take my mind off my daily struggles & I’m sure you ALL do some of the same things!
— That’s it! lol 😜😎🥰
I hope each of you find JOY in your lives DAILY!😁😘

Hi, my name is Balihigh. I've been diagnosed with COPD as well as severe lung disease. I’m on oxygen 24/7 and finding it difficult. I was working full time until 10 months ago. I just don’t feel like myself anymore. I have a wonderful, supportive husband who cleans the house and does laundry and cooks sometimes as well. I don’t have much energy but know it’s important for me to exercise and not sit all day.

If I didn’t have my art I’d be lost! I’m mainly housebound and my art is my lifeline!
It's hard to live up to my families expectations and I know I'm not alone. My COPD makes it hard to just walk to the bathroom then there's the pain of the spidering fractures that happens when I stand/walk that doesn't help but just takes my breath away. (bone density loss started at 26. I'm now 44.)The fact I can't get a job just gets me to a dark place. If you need a wheelchair the places around me won't hire. I'm stuck with my husband being the bill payer which means I don't get much say. So I don't feel heard even when I speak. I know I'm not alone with this kind of situation. That helps. My only solution is to try and hide the pain and apply where I can and finally get my meds and no longer feel guilty about getting what I need. But my family just tells me exercise will fix it. Or I'm guilted into treatments that I know hurt more than help. If I don't do this I don't get support emotionally . I'm dependent on them and it sucks not being heard about what I want. #Depression #ChronicIllness
