Just over five years ago, I found out that I needed to use oxygen equipment to keep my life going. I had been having a lot of problems with my breathing, and after a lot of tests, my doctor determined that this was the best course of action for me. Unfortunately, although I was thankful that I could solve my problems with oxygen equipment, I was not happy about the fact that this meant that I had to deal with a large piece of stationary equipment. As a result of not being able to really move my piece of oxygen equipment, I was forced to give up most of my freedom and spend just about all of my time in my home.
As you can probably imagine, this was a very hard change for me to make. I have always been the type of person who likes to live life to the fullest extent possible, and when I was forced to make this change, I literally felt like my legs had been cut off. For nearly three years, I simply had to accept that my life wasn’t going to be like it had been before. However, after three extremely long years, I was finally introduced to portable oxygen equipment by my doctor. Thanks to using portable oxygen equipment, I can now get around again and do the things that I have always loved to do. I literally thought I was never going to be able to fully live life again, but my portable oxygen equipment has proved me wrong about that.
