Here is a new post special to Apartment Dwellers. Some special notes though.  The idea that their food plans will last very long or be enough to suffice may be exaggerated and reliant on electricity and other utilities, use at you own risk.  I continue to support the idea that you should stay in your apartment/condo ONLY as long a it is safe.  As soon as you realize the situation may become long term, and the golden Horde has moved on, then you should retreat to your community or prearranged location.  Don’t have one yet?  GET ONE!  There are community’s that will take you, if you talk to them IN ADVANCE.

Sleep Apnea and no power – And Todays Links

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

 

Do you have sleep Apnea? What are you supposed to do if you are caught without power?  After a lot/little research, I found this (use at your own risk)

++Sleep in sitting position

——-keep legs elevated to avoid swelling

——-keep head from falling forward

++sleep on your side, with pillows

++bite guard to push your lower jaw forward.

Here is an interesting read I found on an Apnea website;

Re: Survival Techniques when you can’t use CPAP

To quiet my snoring back in the day, I used to gargle with hydrogen peroxide. Yes, the 3% solution in the brown bottle from the drugstore. It’s not very pleasant, but it won’t hurt you, and it will tighten up the back of your throat a bit. It was first recommended to me by a dentist for an abscess when my molars were coming through. I thought he was insane, but an older friend who knew much about health and home remedies told me it was safe, and I used it off and on for years without any ill effects. Swallowing it would definitely not be healthy, though, so pay attention to what you’re doing.

Some say hydrogen peroxide absolutely must be diluted to 1.5% (1/2 from the bottle, 1/2 water or mouthwash), but I never had any trouble using 3% full strength. OTOH, everyone is different, and you may be more sensitive to it than I am. There are probably better astringents, but I had it around and it worked. When it quit working, I learned to sleep only on my side. When that quit working, I wound up here. Hence, H2O2 is couple steps back from what you really need, but it might help a little while you’re off the hose.

I haven’t thought of this in a long time. I should have picked up a bottle when I was at the drugstore tonight. It might help me get through the next week or so until I’ve got my equipment and have figured out how to use it.
