What is the most frustrating part about living with COPD?
Not being able to interact with my grandchildren like I used to do. I miss not being able to go to their games because of the weather or the way I am feeling.
(((Hugs))) know that you aren’t alone, know we are here for you.
My most frustrating part is not being able to do things I use to do. I can't walk a block any more without getting tired. I can't sing in church. I can't go shopping without getting tired. Tiredness is my culprit because I can't breathe.

Based on your comment today, it would seem you are feeling similarly - no real improvement. How do you manage?
It's understandable just how challenging this is for you - not being able to breathe, as you've described, can easily make someone a little panicky.
Are you being followed by a physician?

Having to bring oxygen with you and hoping it lasts.
Not being able to go without the oxygen. Just like a dog that is tied up all the time. Even when you try and sleep
