I was diagnosed in Oct 2004 with COPD.. mine is chronic bronchitis and emphysema. I thought that was the worst that could happen.. I was wrong..Diagnosed with ORS in February of 2008.. Trying not to let depression take hold.as I am only 52 and I have many years left.. Learning to deal with the Anger and Pain. is not easy..when you are told you are unfixable.
