Sleep apnea --- and treatment

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Yesterday I went to my second follow up after being diagnosed with sleep apnea in March, 2008. I have so much more energy now that I can get a good night's rest. Anyone of you that suspects that you might have sleep apnea, I urge you to get tested for it. I had it so bad that I would fall asleep just from sitting still. Before I went in for treatment, I was so depressed by my lack of energy and I had gotten to the point that I thought I was going to die in my sleep.

It took awhile to adjust to the CPAP machine. Now that I am used to it, I wear it while I am reading prior to going to sleep. I love my CPAP machine. It represents GREAT SLEEP. With being able to get a good night's sleep came increased alertness, increased energy, increased happiness.

It is one of the best things that ever happened.
