Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) with Veronica Lee
How to connect with Veronica: https://www.copdjourneys.com Veronica's blog post  "Listening with Compassion": https://www.copdjourneys.com/2019/01/listening-with-compassion.html?m=1 Since recording this episode, Veronica would like to add: She has absent mindedness from the lack of oxygen and talking uses a lot of her energy Her fingernails turn blue from lack of oxygen She has had to cut her hair short because it was hard to maintain. Her hair used to be down to her butt It's hard for her to eat because it's difficult and painful for her to swallow and takes a lot of energy so she eats small amounts. She also has a difficult time catching her breath while eating Five days after recording, Veronica was approved for disability! I'm so grateful Veronica joined the Chronic Illness Support Podcast to talk about her journey with COPD and spread education and awareness about this chronic illness. Sending her and everyone listening hugs and love. Chronic Illness Support Podcast is listed at number 10 of 20 chronic illness podcasts by Feedspot!
