I was diagnosed with COPD about 8 months ago after a hospitalization due to what I thought was bronchitis. I am stage 2 moderate and I’m really struggling to hold down a full time job. I’m exhausted all the time. I sleep with a CPAP, take vitamins, take my medications without fault. No matter how careful I am, every virus floating through office attacks me and really knocks me down. It’s hard to get my energy back up again. I’m feeling like a wimp. I don’t know how I’m going to manage to keep up with 40 hours a week because it’s getting worse. I’m 55 so I have a way to go, but this is causing a lot of anxiety and depression. Feeling a little overwhelmed. Is this normal or am I just a big wimp? I’m trying to suck it up, but I don’t have the energy.
