Treading Water and Trying not to Sink
Wednesday, October 23, 2013
I'm sorry that my blogs aren't more upbeat. Honestly, I'm a pretty happy person overall. But when it comes to how my health is, well there just isn't a lot of sunny news.
I am getting slightly better on my cold. But progress is slow. I tried to use the CPAP last night since my breathing has gotten much better. But it wasn't good enough to use the CPAP. I had it on for about a half an hour while reading, but once I turned off the light and tried to actually sleep, I started to cough. Coughing with a CPAP on is not a pleasant experience and I had to rip it off pretty quickly. I was coughing so hard that I almost tossed my cookies. The problem is, the longer I go with out the CPAP, the worse I feel in my general health. Today my muscles feel like lead and I'm in a lot of pain. I don't know that there is really anything I can do, though. I mean I could ask to be switched to a full-face mask but for every day use I really really like my current one with the nasal pillows. So I think this is just one of those "deal with it" moments that you just grit your teeth through until it is over and then you wonder what all the hullabaloo was all about.
Because of my health, I'm sinking in maintaining my responsibilities. I don't know what else I can do though other than to just do my best.
