Apparently I am not getting enough oxygen into my system. No wonder I feel as though I am in a fog most of my waking hours. My doctor has let me know in no uncertain terms that I will be going onto oxygen as a daily thing. I am not real pleased. I will do what I have to do. Oh well, I have already decided that I will be using the one that turns the air into oxygen. It's lightweight, portable, and lets you carry it around with you. It will be great for me when they finally let me go places. We stopped at the library and I found 6 books that I will enjoy reading. Actually I found more than that but I thought I should leave a few for other people. I think I will watch TV if I can find something good on tonight. If not I will just sit and read. It's my favorite thing to do anyway. Hope every one has a wonderful evening.

Using 02 is an inconvenience, but it is a good thing it is there for you. Reading should be just what the doctor ordered.

It will help me. It's light weight and if I can breathe better I might be able to be out and about a little more.

Thanks, the good thing about all of this is that I can still write, still design, and still crafts. The only this it has done is limited the going out. But I am content with my life and am thrilled that I can still do most of the things I love.

It pays for a good chunk of the cost. I think I will have a minimal amount to pay each month. I guess it's a good thing I can make a bit of money writing and crafting.

@HazySue really? i'd been told 'nsurance'd not cover those, but perhaps that 'twas when they were new? i'd think such'd be greatly cost 'ffective 'n soooo much safer'n those tanks. i'm wonderin' if'n such aint like the big concentrators? where's ya sort'a rent 'em monthly 'til their price's paid'n full, then they'd be yers?

My doctor too advised me to have an oxygen at home, and I’m using it sometimes if I feel shortness of breathing.

That's how I am feeling. It is a small machine that you can carry around with you that turns air into concentrated oxygen.

Unfortunately my oxygen level in my blood is going down. Maybe with the oxygen it will take a jump up. Why are you shallow breathing? Are you having a problem with your oxygen level? I hope not.
