Thanks for the kind thoughts.
Alas, I have memory and cognitive impairment from MS and epilepsy, so technical writing is just plain misery.  Can't remember the previous paragraph so can't hold onto context, etc.  Same issue (worse) with software.  Makes technical projects very hard and stressful.

So I'm doing a whole lot less, plus seeing quacks and doctors,  trying new treatments without any success, which is hard on morale and the wallet.

Yep, designed and build my own hyperbaric chamber and tried that 20 years ago. It  gave me a nasty MS flare up that lasted a few months.  About 10% with MS react very badly to hyperbaric oxygen, according to some UK research. Most find it helpful to some degree.

It was made from a 90 psi horizontal water pressure tank with an extra end cap. It had 8  1 inch by 4 inch light openings on top,  with 1/2 polycarbonate "windows" fitted inside, and dual outside or inside controls for operation.  I could sit and turn around in it.   It had an oval door which sealed via gasket with even the slightest pressure.  It was made from an extra stamped end piece I bought with the tank from an in-state manufacturer.

I sold the chamber to an MD in Texas who wanted to try it for her husband.  She was pretty thrilled to get a chamber tested to 4 atmospheres for (then) under $3.
