Well, if you are worried about your lungs and you smoke...then that is a legit worry.  Stop smoking.  If you are worried about COPD without a history of smoking, then you have an unwarranted fear.

How long had you been smoking, how many packs a day during that time and how old are you?

my mother smoke for years and years.  I think 45-50yrs.    When she was 70 or so before she developed COPD.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

Mold does NOT grow in your lungs.  There is a type of mold that can cause what people refer to legionnaire's disease.  This is very, very rare.  If you had it, you would know, you wouldn't even be able to type to us.  My husband had it and was so sick he couldn't even hold his head up and he had a very high fever.  It comes on quite suddenly it's not a progressive thing at all.  He woke up from a nap feeling a little off and a few hours later was begging me to take him to the ER.

Thanks guys, I just can't deal with this anymore. I've done so good for the last 2 years and now this. Since I woke up this morning I've been dealing with bad anxiety and my asthma has been horrible which is making my anxiety even worse which in return is making my asthma worse. It's just a cycle of hell. I just have a feeling deep in my gut that somethings terribly wrong.
I hate it because yesterday was actually almost normal again besides a few minor episodes.
This is pure misery and I cany deal with it.

anxious peeps always have a "gut feeling" something is terribly wrong.  thing is sometimes a 'gut feeling' can be on target.  However, ha peeps "gut feelings"   are in tight with BEASTY (anxious irrational thinking)  and therefore cannot be trusted.   The gut's conclusions with HA peeps is just unreliable

I get it, you are scared and any sensation you have seems highly sinister.  But the anxiety disorder you have is doing what anxiety disorders do.  It is whipping you up into a frenzy.  You are filtering all of this through a frenetic mindset.   It just makes little sense to hold much stock coming from such a state of mind.
