Will I always be short of breath?
I'm new here and I'm glad this site is here. My issue is my breathing. I stopped smoking March 20, 2017 after smoking for almost 50 years. My doctor said I have emphysema. I asked if I needed to be on oxygen and she said no. I am very depressed because I cannot breathe. Everything I do leaves me out of breath and I hate it. I have tried 7 or 8 different inhalers and they do nothing for me. I blame myself for smoking and I suffer dearly for it.
If I had one wish, it would be to have never picked up that stinking cigarette.
I am 64, divorced, no children. I have one friend and I am grateful for her, as she tries to help me when she can. Please pray for me. Thanks.
Do you have any pets?
