Question: I went to sleep around 10. Forgot my Xanax, woke at 3. Did not fall back asleep. Since it's Saturday, I could sleep in But I laid in bed. Finally at 7:30 I took a half Xanax, at 8:30 I fell asleep but for just an hour. I will be at library soon and work till early afternoon. Then come home and rest.

Yesterday we said I do not have actual air trapping, but can the inflamed and constricted airways make it hard for air to leave just like its hard to take air in.

Brief Answer:
Yes, you are right.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your direct query on HCM.
I can understand your concern.
Yes, your thinking is correct. Stress, inflammation and constriction together make you hard for breath in and out.
Why you forget Xanax?
This is twice in last 3-4 days.
Honestly speaking, this will not work if you don't take it regularly.

Sorry, I did not go to car show. I was spending my time at the library working

Had a day with a positive outlook to my well being
Lately, I have been told on numerous occasions to take a listen to Dr XXXXXXX Greenspan and his wellness seminars. I decided to investigate and at first I thought this was more for people with lung disease than for me. His first seminar is an introduction to his courses and he gives a basic outline and picture of his courses. He not only talked about persons with lung disease but he talks of those with stress and anxiety and many reasons why shortness of breath occurs.

His whole course is actually pulmonary rehab and how to overcome or increase living and decreasing sob. I enjoyed the parts on people like me who have constant PFTs with same results but increasing sob Also the lack of exercise suing body to react with need for air but not fit to breath right I saw a course in anxiety. I will listen to that

All of that gave me relaxation today

Watched some tv documentaries tonight. One was about a 17 year old girl who was raped and killed. The British police did a manhunt for the killer. It took them to XXXXXXX I watched it intently and was amazed at the footage of XXXXXXX I was amazed and interested. Big big country.

No reason given, just that selection was hard and good luck in future jobs.

Stress was up there, Sunday to monday slept only 5 hours, last night 7 hours.

Can feel excess stress, probably due to completion date coming soon. I have gotten most complete but have to find time to finish report and now have other items due on same day.
