    Hey Rainbows, great to see you here. Really sorry to hear about your husband's diagnosis. It is not at all uncommon for someone to go into a funk — feel really low emotionally — when they learn they have a chronic condition. It's really important to talk and get emotional support for someone who is newly diagnosed. I hope he is talking to you about his feelings. Men aren't always so good about that. Maybe he has a brother or a friend who might also be a good listener as well. We have a lot of articles about Coping under "Living with COPD." I hope you will stay in touch with us. Let us know how you're doing.
