Everyone experiences things differently but it can be very common to feel low, anxious or worried when you have COPD. Feeling breathless can effect the things that you used to do, or you could be avoiding things you enjoy due to worrying if it will make you feel worse. The health and wellbeing team can help you to manage your condition, learn new skills to improve your wellbeing and enjoy life.
We know that talking helps, so try to think about someone that you trust and share with them how you feel.
Don’t forget about others who will be more than happy to support you: GP, Practice Nurse and the IAPT workers in your GP practice.
Make new friends who know what you’re going through, and learn more about living with a lung condition.
