How do I get my children to understand what I’m going through?

I am in the severe stage, my daughter sprays on perfume or burns candles when i have asked her not to, how it makes me feel. She lives with me old enough to know better.

    Hi Cherry1960 and thanks for this post. It can be a challenge for family and friends to have more of an understanding as to what you’re going through with COPD. It may help for your daughter to read up on the issues with which you are concerned.
    First, I thought this article on avoiding COPD triggers might be of some help: https.://copd.net/answers/expert-answers-avoiding-triggers/.

    And second, Cherry, I thought this article on explaining COPD to family and friends might help too: https://copd.net/living/explaining-to-family-and-friends/.

    Wishing you the best,
