@Courtney_J It hasn't drastically affected my job, but sometimes with physical tasks I have to go slower and take breaks. With masks too sometimes I have to take breaks outside throughout the day to breath better. But I've gotten used to them over the months.
I am retired but for 11 years volunteered as a guide at the local food pantry. I have end-stage emphysema and my condition deteriorated enough that I had to leave that volunteer position just before COVID hit. I miss the human contact.

I thought I would launch a discussion here about working with COPD!
For those of you who currently work or who have worked while diagnosed, has COPD and its symptoms impacted your work life? Have you had to change your work activities or schedule because of it? How did or do you cope?
