I was just diagnosed with COPD recently and I was wondering if anyone actually knows how or where they "got" this disease?

I'm not sure but I think it could only be from many years working in an auto shop with all the paints and things but I can't really know I guess.

I've been feeling so destroyed by this, my life feels over.

Hello @chronicpain!‍, thank you for opening this discussion. Let me tag some other members who can possibly share with you.

Hi all, how are you today? Do you know what may have caused or contributed to your COPD? Was it smoking or an occupational cause like for @chronicpain!‍ ? Or is the origin of your COPD unknown?

Feel free to share here!

Take care,
