The issue is whether you can work within the restrictions with your COPD. If you are not able to work in a job reasonably within your knowledge, skill and ability (additionally considering the restrictions imposed by the COPD) and with which you have some experience, then you cannot arguably state that you can work with COPD. So, the question they will have if you tell them about the COPD is whether you can work within your restrictions, and of course you must be searching for such jobs. You certainly will get additional scrutiny if you tell them about the condition. Whether your COPD is too restrictive at this point to even work I don't know...only you and your doctor(s) can answer that.
