Anyone that ever said the maskers are like a cult or religion was spot on.

They get enraged if you try to point out the complete lack of logic. The fun is watching them delete their posts when they are cornered and losing horribly. *poof* and a message that "something went wrong" and you can't reply because they abandoned ship and took their posts with them.

I would watch the oxygen monitor and it would dip to 94 and occasionally 93 (and start flashing as this is a low threshold). Immediately upon stopping the forced inhalation, the number would bounce up to 96 and 97 and stay. My expectation was actually the complete opposite. I expected more air meant more oxygen. That was not the case. However, by doing that forced breathing, I was able to increase and maintain high numbers for the entire 15 days.
I had shortness of breath, to the point where I would take in a full lungfull of air and hold it trying to get the feeling that I was no longer out of breath, on the last day before I started treatment.

When it's below about 93 I start to feel that way again. The inhalers work.

I call my rescue inhaler Vlad.

It's a long vid, but very enlightening. Worth the time, IMHO.

No? Didn’t think so.

Assumptions, conjecture, speculation, correlation and beliefs aren’t objective proof of anything.
You're arguing with a guy that installs dry wall for a living. Scientific methodology not required in his line of work.
