Could Wearing Facial Mask In A Hot Kitchen, With COPD, Be The Cause Of My Congestive Heart Failure

Could Wearing Facial Mask In A Hot Kitchen, With COPD, Be The Cause Of My Congestive Heart Failure

Thanks,

Depression And COPD

Depression And COPD

I am a 66 woman on my own. Not a place I ever thought I would be, ending my life alone.
I have had depression as long as I can remember, and each month my COPD gets that much worse that I can barely go out anymore.
