Know the Signs of COPD.

I and my siblings suffer from Sleep Apnea and so this short health article is important. Sleep Apnea was the cause of a horrible truck collision that broke my neck [C1 and C2 anterior] in 1997 that could have paralyzed or killed me. Go figure... What if I had not know God, nor accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Savior back then and died?? In fact I was just leaning the truth about the Gospel and being "SAVED." Wow! That was surely a 'wake-up call' for me! Actually, it changed my whole way of thinking and set new priorities for my life after that accident. Only I was hurt in that accident. PTL.

Thank you for visiting my journal. I am running so far behind in comments recently. Does not take long to get a big list! lol I can understand why the accident changed your life. Went through a FAITH lesson ministering to others and they advised everyone to give a life changing situation. Sure that you had a lot to share through that experience. Blessings, Janie
