I should feel better but don’t

I was diagnosed with COPD with emphysema in the early stages. A lung nodule was also found during a c-scan but was thought to be non cancerous. I quit smoking upon learning this awful news with the help of e-cigs. I gradually cut back the nicotine and have been free of it for 14 months. In the process I gained 35 pounds and feel worse than I did before I quit. The added weight could count for more labored breathing or maybe I’ve progressed. I am determined to get the weight off I hate my life the way it is now. Everything is so difficult to do now. I am a very active person; I’ve got too​ much to do to be slowed with this much!
