How do you cope with your life?

I sought help for depression! I am on medication and I now see a therapist! I just started therapy few weeks ago. I don’t know how to proceed with my life! I don’t know what I can do and can’t do. Its been 2 years I don’t want to spend another summer in the house. I’m going to travel to see my daughter. But I’m scared! I’m scared i won’t enjoy myself.

    Hi TrendaIvy and thank you for sharing so candidly your current situation – we understand just how frightening managing COPD can be. As Alesandra has indicated, we have an entire online community here that understands how you feel and what you’re going through. Besides the referenced article that Alesandra has provided, I thought some of your apprehension may be able to be managed by your face-to-face sessions with your therapist. Since you just started a few weeks ago, you may want to give it some time for the therapist to assist you with the fears you’ve expressed here. Of course, if there is anything we can do to assist you, please let me or any other moderator/team member know. We are all here for you! Wishing you the best, Leon (site moderator)
