Tue, Mar 31 6:42pm · COVID-19 and MAC: What are you doing differently to protect yourself? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

This happened to me too. I went to my spam folder, selected a post from the corona virus forum, selected "move to", select "Inbox". It will appear in your Inbox. All new posts will then go directly to your Inbox. I have Yahoo but I think it will work on any email.

I never get a normal cold (7-10 days) mine always go into sinus infections &then sometimes bronchitis. At the end of 2018 I had one followed by two others in early 2019 with sinus infections that required antibiotics. This was very concerning to me now at age 73. So I finally started taking Vitamin D. Years ago a doctor prescribed it for me because I am low in this as are many Americans. I haven't been sick since. I keep a hand sanitizer in my car & use it after every shopping trip & gas fill-up. When I get my groceries home I put the bags on the floor which I had previously washed with Lysol. Then remove each product one at a time & spray it with a Lysol spray & put it on my table to dry. I also spray my mail & mailbox handle. Lately reports have told us to make sure we have a will. I haven't gotten that far but I have been going through all my very old documents which are now defunct & shredding them since I never had the time to do it until now. I watch the news at noon, the governor's update @ 2:30 & the 5:00-7:00 news reports. Today our governor (Holcolm) said they would be going to twice daily briefing's soon. We are an emerging hot- spot. Our numbers of dead double every 3 days based on my own record keeping. I keep a journal but now it is mainly about the Corona virus Pandemic. My YMCA is closed so I work out at home to exercise DVD's. I stay positive knowing that the Chinese have survived this.

Hi Ian, Thanks for the 2 thoughts. I should have mentioned that my sleep patterns are inconsistent. For example, last night I slept straight through. I fell asleep watching Saturday Night Live which was probably around midnight. I woke up I think at 8:30 am, turned on the TV, and dozed off again. The only thing different was that I didn't go work out yesterday, it's been raining all weekend, there's been flooding problems, and I saw 3 car wrecks within several miles of my house! I was planning on working out yesterday but when I saw the 3rd car wreck, I turned around and went home! I didn't want to tempt fate! It's great weather for sleeping I think. I really can't remember if I ever tried to go to sleep after falling asleep after dinner. Eating makes me sleepy. When I've really had a hard time falling asleep in the wee hours, sometimes i'd make myself something to eat and that would get me to sleep! Most people would probably NOT be able to sleep after eating but with me, it's the opposite.

I have the same issue: I can fall asleep but not stay asleep. I function pretty well during the day though. When I don't get the amount of sleep I need, I have a harder time getting going in the morning. By early afternoon though, I feel normal. After I eat dinner, I turn on the TV to watch the world news (6:30 pm), and then no matter how hard I try not to, I will fall asleep for an hour or so. When I wake up, I feel like I want to continue to sleep because I am groggy and sleepy but I wake myself up because if I continued to sleep (and assuming I'd sleep straight through), I'd end up wide awake and raring to go at 4:00 am! Actually, I've never tried it. Maybe I should! Or maybe it would screw me up even more!
