I have to use oxygen at night now.

Thursday, December 29, 2011

My cardioligist referred me to a pulmonary Lung Doctor. I was amazed that my own Doctor was
not treating my Severecopd; empheysema. My new lung Doctor requested a lung test at a hospital. I was surprised to learn how severe my COPD is; and emphyesma is. I knew something was wrong by the way I have been feeling for quite sometime.... What I am trying to say is that I am surprised my own doctor didn't do anything. Now I know and I am feeling a little down. Also trying to learn how to cope with this....My husband is Quite upset with me..
Angry is the right word.. He has been swearing alot at me; because I can't do what I used to do
physically. That hurts me very much!! I am sad that he treats me this way!! My husband dosen't understand how I feel physically. He can't!! If anyone else has this; can you give me some suggestions how to cope with this?? I thank you for listening!!

    Im sorry you are having a tough time. I too have the beginning stage of COPD, the best thing I did was quit smoking 2 yrs ago, and I relied on prayer and thats all. Your hubby sounds like mine,and they can be ignorant, and selfish. Im sorry he is angry with you for being ill. I will pray for him.
    Hugs to you, hang in there my friend and know that you are a beautiful person and you will succeed. Just dont ever give up and let no one steal the " fight" in you.

    Your husband is scared. Have the doctor explain your condition to him. He cannot bully you unless you let him. Calmly tell him that his anger is not helping the situation. Get help Darlin. I know this is scarey. You are in my prayers.
