Depression and COPD

Posted on March 05, 2018

Living with depressive symptoms or clinical depression and COPD is common. Additionally, quality of life is strongly impaired which can cause anxiety and isolation. Getting support from others while managing depression and COPD goes hand-in-hand.

On MyCOPDTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with COPD, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Depression is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about depression:

Does anyone get depressed and cry a lot?

How do you not become depressed or go stir crazy when you are stuck in the house due to cold weather?

How many of you suffer from depression? Did someone point it out to you?

Here are some conversations about depression:
