Working with COPD

Working with COPD gets harder for me everyday. I work in dietary at a living center. The heat and humidity is horrible for me. I have to do breathing treatments but I don’t know how much longer I can work. Hopefully the humidity will go down and I get some relief 😓😓

    Hi Tw1960
    The humidity can make it so difficult to breathe, which makes is hard to function.
    Is it possible to bring a fan into your workplace? Are you able to bring a nebulizer or breathing treatment into work?
    Let us know how you are doing. There are many pages of information here and support.
