I have been attending the Oxygen Therapy Centre for the past 2 years. I have suffered from ME and fibromyalgia for the past 28 years. When I went to the OTC I was suffering from various other health problems and my life was just a constant struggle and blur of pain. I had muscle pain from the back of my head right through my body to my feet. I could not sit, only lie down and that was awkward especially when I had to travel as I had to lie all the time. I could not empty either my bladder or my bowels. I could not sleep at night and just had short periods of rest during the day as a result of pure exhaustion. As you can imagine, my life was unbearable. It was tough on my family as well to watch me suffering all the time.
I’m now delighted to report that after the first 5/6 weeks attending the OTC I started to empty my bladder. My bowels took most of a year to really show a good improvement. I can now sit and have put on a stone in weight. I now get 6/7 hours sleep straight through the night. My life has greatly improved and it’s thanks to the Oxygen Therapy Centre in Larne.
I would like to thank everyone at the centre who have all been so kind and accommodating. I would especially like to thank Vickie and Linda who looked after my every need and were so kind and understanding towards me and the volunteers who give their time freely.
I would strongly recommend oxygen treatment as it has changed my quality of life immensely.
