Just picking up on Robert's comment about him having PTSD.
I wonder how much of a factor stress is in adversely affecting COPD? I know that stress DOES affect it, but I don't know how much or in what ways - does anyone know how much research has been done on this area?
Robert, I really do know what you're going through with PTSD, it's like some awful vicious circle, isn't it. the copd causes breathing difficulties... which causes stress... which worsens the PTSD... and PTSD causes you to hyperventilate...
Worse, given that both ptsd and copd cause depression, you must be really struggling. It sounds like ptsd is quite a new thing for you as well? It takes a lot of coming to terms with, I know.
