I was recently diagnosed woth COPD

When my doctor xrayed my lungs during a routine exam for asthma he discovered lung damage. He asked me if I had ever smoked and I told him no.

The doctor told me he saw COPD damage to my lungs and boy do I feel gypped. I never put a damn cigarette or cigar or pipe in my mouth my whole life. Nevertheless I have f****** COPD.

I feel like I'm being punished for something I didn't do.

F*** this. There is no cure for COPD other than inhaled steroids which only open up your lungs so that you can breath a bit.

I ddn't bring this upon myself and I'm very bitter about this. COPD is a bad way to die.

  • Thousands of people die every year from lung cancer that never smoked a day in their life, so what the f*** is that about?

  • Pray to God. He can save you.

  • And air pollution didn't have anything to do with it? Come on,please,stop using tobacco as scapegoat for everything.Now would be the best thing to switch to Paleo lifestyle...low car but most importantly you need saturated fats for lungs and stay away from all liquid diary!

  • Low carb* dairy products*

  • I'm in the same position, my parents smoked around me when I was a kid, and it resulted in the same diagnosis. It blows! and it's not fair. You had no control in the situation, and you're left with the consequences of other people's actions. I'm sorry that this has happened and you're not alone

  • Sorry about the news.
