COPD for 8 years

I first knew I had COPD 8 years ago and for most of that time I was fine but around October of this year I started coughing. On the 1st of November I was rushed to hospital having problems breathing and it turned out I had picked up a bug which was a bit like Pneumonia. I was in hospital for 10 days and I am feeling a lot better now. Still on oxygen, but I can go without it for awhile. I have never been so scared in my life. I just hope and pray it does not come back.

    You may get sick again. See your doctor at the first sign of illness. Keep fighting. Find a lung support group to learn about COPD and living with it. God bless you.
