> I can concur...When I was in the hospital for 3 weeks, after pneumonia and a collapsed lung (non-COVID), I was on oxygen every night, and I felt amazing everyday! Then I came home, and went right back down. BUT, I am getting a CPAP machine, and they do facilitate oxygen levels (even if they don't use forced oxygen). See, all of us do stop breathing in the night. CPAP keeps the air flowing, increasing oxygen intake. My doctor explained it to me.

I have a friend who was depressed for years, had tried a couple antidepressants, without success, and finally, at his wife's insistence, went to a sleep lab, where he was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. He started using a CPAP, and his depression disappeared overnight.
