15 hours ago · Cleaning your CPAP mask. in Sleep Health

@jmb73 For a long time my husband has had issues with sinus problems and coughing problems. He has had many x-rays and visits to specialists, various different meds etc. He has also used a CPAP for a long time too. Recently we decided to try turning off the moisture in it- the doctor said give it a shot. Almost immediately the coughing stopped and his breathing improved 100 per cent! So we have discontinued the water in the CPAP. He does use a corticosteroid as well and he still does need that but he is so much better it is amazing! Maybe this info will be helpful to someone!

Sat, Jan 12 7:44pm · The Journey of Grieving in Mental Health

@maddiec – Hi Maddie-I think you are amazing! I want to share the following with you. It was a poem that was paraphrased by Robert Kennedy-
"Even in our sleep
Pain which cannot forget
Falls drop by drop upon the heart
Until in our own despair
Against our will
Comes wisdom
Through the awful grace of God"

Best wishes

@shaker1956 -Hi shaker- Just wanted to drop you a line and say I hope things are going well with you. It was so lovely to hear that
you have such a terrific supporter in your wife- I am sure that makes things a lot easier to cope with! I wanted to wish you and your family ( and all our Connect friends) a happy holiday season and if you celebrate it- a very merry Christmas – and a heathy Happy New Year! I know you must be counting the days until that new Grand baby arrives-will it be the first one?

Dec 11, 2018 · Long-term depression in Depression & Anxiety

@anitamarie– Hi anitamarie
We have been there with our Grandson. I would suggest you have gene testing done as it helps identify what meds are right or wrong for him. In the case of our Grandson it turned out that the medication he was already on was the right one for him and per his doctor the dose was good too. Also his parents bought a light box for him as well. He is progressing to the point that he has been able to start slowly back to university, work in the summer, volunteer in the winter and also has his first girlfriend. I forgot to mention he has also taken Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which he thinks was helpful.
Hope these ideas may be useful.
Best wishes

@shaker1956 – Hi Shaker
We are happy to hear back from you- just sorry the treatments are so difficult. Glad though that the situation can be dealt with ongoing! My husband has diabetes and what with insulin 4 times a day and a collection of meds is able to carry on quite well. Glad to know the outlook for you is like that! Is the smart drug a new thing?
Stay strong.
Best wishes
