my husband was diagnosed with copd 2 years ago. since then he has lost his job and his will to live. I am afraid he is becoming suicidal. we live out in the boonies. we do not watch tv or movies. we used to go on walks, go camping, go out to dinner, and go to pow wows. now we do nothing. we are broke and it feels like we are alone in the world. we have nothing but our 1 year old baby boy. the baby seems to be a burden on my husband. the lonliness and boredom are killing him. (and me) can anyone suggest anything that is safe and do-able with a heavy tank on ones back? please help.

I read on here something about the inogen portables. I am very small in stature and have a small tank for portable. They are about a foot tall. Was thinking of buying a portable but was told with the battery they are about 5 lbs. I dont think I could carry that much weight. Just wondering if anyone has a portable. Do the batteries wear out fast?
