I Am Scared!!

I am recently widowed and was diagnosed with COPD in Dec 2014. I have been in denial but now on oxygen and getting harder to go places or do my work around the house. Living alone I am scared now. I too smoked for 50 years. I quit but when my husband passed I started smoking again. Now it's hard to quit. I am really scared now and don't want to give up my independence. Wish I would have listened to the doctors when they told me it was serious. I won't give up. I will try to do all I can to improve my life. Thank you for letting me vent. Annie
