Piling up...

Sunday, February 03, 2013

First I got a message that I was on reserve for that university course in ancient philosophers, I was number eleven so I thought I would not get in...but I did and it starts next week and I finally managed to get in my "student page" and found that I am supposed to read some platon before that... the univesity course of singer-song writing starts wednesday but they do not seem to be expecting me to prepare something... I have written two texts for our summershow and yesterday I heard som of the other acts...and it might be fabulous! The hard thing is that we are planning to have a lot of videos involved and that might be hard to fix...lots of films to make and then it is supposed to work during our performances also...

I kept on the good side of eating yesterday and will do that today too...

And yes - I DO have sleepapnea, even got a oxygene mask but could never handle it so my survival plan is to lose weight... as it has been for the past six years since I learned that I had sleep apnea. It it probably due to my overweight and will disappear if I get slimmer...

    Actually it is very difficult to lose weight with (untreated) sleep apnea, as the frequent shortages of breath cause cortisol to be pumped out, and as we know cortisol is 'the fat storage hormone'. So, if at all possible it is better to treat the apnea with CPAP (I know that is really hard to adjust to in the beginning, but if you persist you will love that you did). Also, untreated apnea can cause heart problems and heart failure. You don't want that. So, unless you can really take the weight off and keep it off, it is important to use a CPAP. (And, remember it is very difficult to take the weight off if you're pumping out all that cortisol... so, CPAP is pretty much a must.)

    Good luck with the university courses. The classes sound great.

    I hope that you are able to resolve your sleep apnea issues as well. I don't think I could handle having to wear a mask to sleep either.

    Tackle one task at a time. It's much easier that way.

    Glad your eating is going well; one day at a time you can do it! I would be overwhelmed with all you take on! You are so talented and have so many interests it seems you never have any down time. You also seem to manage to get it all in! You are amazing. Have a good day today! Hugs.

    I have had some sleep issues. a melanoma blend has helped me to sleep. I've never needed a sleep mask.
    Check out this inspiring video about just taking the next step forward. I'm praying for you today. Jackie

    emoticon I also have sleep Apnea, and fortunately can handle the face mask (guess too many years as an RN and having to wear a mask covering my nose and mouth without oxygen attached to do sterile procedures)! LOL I do not think I would make it if it were not for the CPAP (mask and oxygen and machine to deliver the oxygen with pressure). I have been using one nearly two years now. I know losing weight may help, but it also may not in my case. I also have some Respiratory issues including Chronic Asthma that have made my sleep apnea worse. Good Luck with all your classes and activities, and keep pushing for the weight you want to get off to avoid the need for CPAP.
