My experience with going down to 22ft

Hi there and welcome back to my blog. How are you? I do hope you are well. Today’s blog post is about my experience with going down a deeper depth inside the hyperbaric oxygen chamber. So far, I’ve been using the hyperbaric oxygen chamber at 16.5ft for over three years. But last month, I took a test to see if I can medically use a deeper depth in the chamber or not and I passed. So last month, I started to use the chamber at 22ft.

The first thing that I had noticed was that it took longer for the pressure to go down and up again. I’m guessing that is because it takes time to get down further. I didn’t feel different in the chamber initially, but afterward, I did notice some massive improvements with regards to my right eye.

My word and brain games have profoundly improved. Normally, I would use a couple of hints to complete my daily challenges but recently, I’ve only used a couple of hints throughout all of my games. With my brain games, I’m getting high scores on all of my games including games that I used to play before my diagnosis

One word game that I like to play every day, Word Scapes, I had a streak of 6 days of completing the daily challenge without using a single hint. The same has been throughout each of my word games. That streak ended when I took part in a Brain Tumour Support fun activity morning which had knackered me out.

As I’ve mentioned a couple of years ago, in my original blog post about the hyperbaric oxygen chamber, my hand-eye coordination had improved after a couple of sessions in the chamber. Now due to being in lockdown, I haven’t used my Chinese therapy balls, but my ukulele playing has improved quite a bit.

My diabetes insipidus has also improved. Before the chamber, I would go to the bathroom, 8 -10 times. Now I’m only going to the bathroom 6 times.

Overall, I am seeing improvements in all aspects of my life. Next month, i should be going down further down to 32 feet.

That’s it for now. Once again, I just want to thank a few people. Firstly, I would like to thank my mum, dad, sister, and my Naughty Mamaji, for being by my side, throughout everything. I would like to thank everyone from BTS for sharing this with the community. I would like to thank Kanika, Shirley, and everyone at Carers Trust for giving me the confidence to share my story and I would like to thank Joe for motivating me to get back on the horse. And I would like to thank everyone at the hospital, my family and friends, and everyone who I’ve met on this journey.

Next time, I’m going to talk about me going down even deeper in the hyperbaric oxygen chamber. Please feel free to leave a comment and as always, if you buy something from Amazon, through the blog, or click on an advert, 100% of the money that I get goes to charity.

Thanks and take care.
