Hi, my name is kpnuts196.
I am 52 and have 3 grown up children.
I am a wheelchair user, with spinal problems, heart failure and PTSD.  I am also on long term oxygen therapy, due to getting Covid-19 about 18 months ago. I dont let these things stop me from living my life, my way.
Makes for an interesting lifestyle though :D:#

    Sadly, lots of other people have been affected far worse than I.
    I am extremely thankful that I haven't lost any of my loved ones to this horrible virus.

    Do you know how long-term the treatment will be?

    At this point life long I think. I was on half a litre per hour, which is a tiny amount. A few months ago I spoke to an oxygen nurse about being weaned off it.
    Then 3 weeks ago a different oxygen nurse doubled my oxygen prescrIptIon to 1 litre per hour, because my oxygen levels were consistently too low. 

    Please just give us a shout if you need any help finding your way around!
           Will do,
           thank you.
