Holding down a job while living with COPD

I was wondering if there was anyone else that is trying to continue with a 'normal' life as in working and raising a child while trying to cope with COPD? I am a 53 year old single Mom of a 16 year old teenage boy. If bothers me that my sone has to see me sick so often. Also, I am having an episode currently and have been out of work for a few weeks which concerns me because I worry about my job. I typically go back to work too soon because i need my job which is where I get my health coverage so it's important that I keep my job plus I really enjoy working. Work is not always too understanding and I do get that but mentally it really is a struggle for me.
