2Breathe System – Sleep Help Is Here…

I have pretty much tried everything I can to help me when I have trouble sleeping.

I can’t take Melatonin because it interacts with some meds,  Valerian I save only for mild sedation because with my kidney issues I can’t take it very often.

Oxygen Schmoxigen

I can’t help but be a little frustrated.   Last weekend I noticed I was having breathing issues again on my Niov.  I had it maxed out & it still wasn’t enough support for me even sitting around anymore. I was still having periodic drops with it set to the highest level.

Interesting News: Potential New Drug Fights Bacteria & Viruses At The Same Time

This piece from Lung Disease News really had me excited.

My viral infections sometimes morph into a bacterial infection very quickly if not monitored quickly.   I don’t always need an antibiotic but sometimes I do.  Sometimes they’ll put me on one for a particularly nasty infection because they know I can’t clear it like most people can.

I glanced over the study the article pointed to. It’s a pretty fascinating read for science geeks.
