Anxious

Posted by Virginia Chambers on Sat 15th Aug 2020 8:45pm

I was diagnosed with COPD last year and I'm still just coming to terms with that. I've found it tough at times to manage my disease. It seems like I'm always having flare-ups and having to adjust to new medications and their many side effects.  It's been rough, but I was managing.  And then here comes the fear of COVID-19 to knock me to my knees. I did not need that; I'm sure none of us did!  I've always been a stickler for washing my hands thoroughly to stop the spread of germs. Now I'm borderline compulsive with it. I'm so anxious that I clean and clean and clean.  My lungs could never handle the coronavirus.  I think I've got my pulse oximeter permanently attached to my finger at this point.
