Living On Oxygen for Life
This is a common question that I see when people find my blog. It’s an honest question that we all want to know the answer to. Unfortunately, unless you are psychic (which I’m not), we just won’t know what that answer will be. With that being said, how long you will live really depends on a few things. Living longer means wearing your oxygen as prescribed, taking your medicine as prescribed, staying active but rest when your body says you need a break, and be smart about taking care of yourself. Don’t expose yourself to people who are sick, eat right, and never give up the fight to live a quality life you deserve. Make this a goal.
I’ve used oxygen for the past 27 years. It’s started out at night time use only when I slept. Now it’s 24/7. It is worth it to fight hard for living longer. By fighting hard, what I mean is to keep a positive attitude. Somedays it will be harder than others. Sometimes you may just want to crawl into your bed and just throw the covers over your head. Crawling in bed or having a bad day or having a lazy day is ok as long as you remember that this is temporary and that you are not going to cave in… or just give up. Because, once you give up, your health declines.
Having a someone close to you who you can turn to when those down days occur and you need a pep talk is a fabulous thing to have. For me, I have my older sister and my husband.
Make everyday one step forward by being aware of how much you love life.
