First, we want to thank you for all of the great comments and tips you sent in during our “Ask the Readers” series. We were really impressed by how inventive and resourceful our COPD community is! One of the letters we received can be best answered by a wider community. So for this week, we are asking all of you readers to actually be the “Coach” and help this person out!
Dear COPD Coach,
Recently, I was told by my doctor that I need to start using supplemental oxygen at night. Since I have started using the oxygen, I have not had a good nights sleep. I get tangled up in the hose, and wake up with it wrapped around my throat or my body. What do I need to do to get a good nights sleep?
If you have a solution for Sleepless, please enter your ideas in the comments section.
If you enjoy helping others, why not consider joining our Coaches Corner Team! The Coaches are all people just like yourselves, and are either COPD patients and caregivers. It doesn’t require a great time commitment, and your efforts can really offer support to many people. If you think you might be interested, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the C.O.P.D. Information line at 866-316 COPD (2673).
