I have COPD this is my lungs are not good.I was hoping to talk to people who have the same problem and how they cope.I would like to talk to you good people about how you are treated by the public and the medical profession. I ask because sometimes I feel like I am not being heard or I need another way to get my point across. Thanks for taking the time.

    Hi @annvaughan50
    Sorry to hear you're having trouble sleeping, NHS has its ups and downs but I can't fault them especially after everything that's happened this yesr! Took a good few years to get doctors to listen to me and get the right diagnosis.
