Hello Spanoo - just wanted to pop in and welcome you to the forum. Again, I have very little advice re depression. My Mum had COPD amongst other things and one of the side effects of this awful disease was the depression and this was one of the most difficult things to deal with - I felt quite helpless at times as to how to help too.
Hopefully, more advice from members will follow. Once again, welcome aboard.
