I smoked for 42 yrs never thinking anything bad would happen, I got diagnosed 3 yrs ago. I am on O2 at night, spiriva, Breo, Daliresp, 2 inhalers, a nebulizer. I have been to the ER numerous times and admitted in the hospital 4 times in the last year. I have completed 18 weeks of pulmonary rehab, which helped but I am tired all the time. I try to keep a notebook of all my triggers... stress and anxiety being 2 of the worse.
