What causes pulmonary fibrosis?

I have recently been diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis. How does one get from bronchitis or copd to this disease? I did have bronchitis at times I quit smoking in 1979, never did smoke very much but has some asthma in my early teens. And I had Gerds a few years ago that I took prescription meds for years. I am now on a C Pap and inhaler.
